It seems that the Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko with his recent statement caused a lot of noise in Russia, in connection with which the representative of the Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova assured Minsk that there is no reason for concern, reports replyua.net.
“For us Belarus is a reliable partner and ally. The policy of expanding strategic cooperation with Minsk is no doubt,” said the propaganda.
As previously reported, recently Lukashenko has warned Russia that it may lose Belarus as their only ally in the Western direction, in the absence of negotiations with Minsk in addressing the effects of the “tax maneuver” in the oil sector. Besides, the 10th of the current month, the head of the Republic of Belarus noted that at the current stage about the unification of his country with Russia cannot be considered.
“No fair basis – there is no Union. Everything must be on an equal footing, and it must be the will of the two peoples – Russian Federation and Belarus … So many reasons, you know, about the unification of the two States is out of question”, – he commented his point of view.
