If there is an attack on Belarus, his country will react immediately, warns ruler Lukashenko. Fighting continues in eastern Ukraine.
Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenko has threatened the West. If there is an attack on Belarus, his country will react immediately, he said in a speech on the country's upcoming Independence Day, according to the state news agency Belta. Lukashenko has also accused Ukraine of launching rocket attacks on his country.
"Less than a month ago I ordered our armed forces to target the decision-making centers in your capitals," Lukashenko said. He didn't explain exactly what he meant by that. Last week, Russian President Vladimir Putin promised Lukashenko the delivery of nuclear-capable Iskander-M missile systems "in the coming months." Since the end of February there have been fears that Belarus could officially join Russia in the war in Ukraine . Lukashenko has already admitted that in the first weeks of the war, Russian rockets were fired at Ukraine from Belarusian territory.
