Lukashenko Accused The United States And Europe Of Organizing Riots In Belarus

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has accused the United States and Europe of organizing unrest in the country, according to the BelTA News Agency on Friday.

"The US plans all this and directs it, while the Europeans play along. Said so - will do so. A special center has been created near Warsaw. We control it; we know what it does. The tracks began to clank. You see when there is unrest nearby, and tanks start moving, and planes start flying, it is no accident," Lukashenko said.

He added that Western countries are trying to use Belarus against Russia. "We were preparing this mess. And Russia was afraid of losing us. The West has somehow decided to pull us up, of course, as we see now, against Russia. Now they want to establish this Baltic-black sea corridor, a sanitary cordon - the three Baltic republics, we and Ukraine. We are one link left here," he said during a visit to the agricultural plant "Dzerzhinskiy."

Lukashenko added that several centers of forces are operating against the country, where "governments in exile have settled." "The coordinating Council (of the opposition) is a beautiful name. I think there are five governments in exile abroad today," he said.
