Alexander Lukashenko quotes
We will destroy any fifth or 25th column and this does not make us a dictatorship. Belarus is experiencing massive pressure. There was panic on the currency and consumer markets caused by the opposition and foreign analysts.
There has been so much democracy it has almost made us sick.
We paid all our debt by midday on Wednesday and we asked Gazprom to please stop limiting the gas flow. I know some countries like Germany and Lithuania said that they were not receiving all their gas, but they have to address that to Gazprom, not us.
We try to create peaceful relations with our neighbours, and respect the rights of each nation to choose how they develop. We do not have any political or territorial claim on any other country.
There should be an opposition, an alternative point of view, and the opposition has a role in society. But it must be a Belarus opposition, not an opposition fed and funded from outside.
Let me say that the revolution so many people talked about and some were preparing has failed and it could not be otherwise.
