Western countries are still indebted to Belarus for the losses suffered in World War II, but at the same time, they are trying to break into the territory of the state again and start fighting there. This was stated by the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko in an interview with the BBC.
"You must understand that if we start a war here in Belarus, NATO and Russia will intervene in it. It will be a nuclear war," Lukashenko stressed.
Earlier, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said that the Alliance stands in solidarity with Poland in connection with the migration crisis on the border with Belarus and accused Lukashenko of using migrants to wage a hybrid war against other countries.
Prior to that, Belarusian Defense Minister Viktor Khrenin accused Poland and other NATO countries bordering Belarus of building up their military presence near the borders of the republic, they want to unleash a conflict.
The migration crisis on the border of Belarus and the EU countries began in the summer of 2021 after the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that he would weaken control over the flows of illegal migrants against the background of another aggravation of relations with Western countries.
