Along with Chechen Prime Minister Ramzan Kadyrov (46), the autocrat in Minsk is currently one of the most important allies of Vladimir Putin (70): Alexander Lukashenko (68) recently said in a TV interview with the Belarusian state television BelTA , about himself a lot -praise, it’s good that there is “discipline and leadership” in Minsk – the opposition certainly looks at things differently.
Lukashenko then addressed the Ukrainian president directly in an interview held at the Protz residence: “Volodymyr, stop it. It’s about to get worse. Especially for Ukraine. The war must end now.”
In a TV interview, the Belarusian dictator talks about the alleged casualties of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the counteroffensive that began in the summer: 45,000 Ukrainian soldiers have already been killed or seriously wounded in these few weeks – that would mean The loss of one fifth of the entire army.
And Lukashenko told Belta it was futile to fight anyway: The Russian military still has “250,000 troops in reserve” that haven’t even been deployed yet. The Belarusian president says Ukrainians are suffering heavy losses, they “can’t even get through Russian landmines” – and “Poles are rubbing their hands”.
Of course, the dictator in Minsk has a great interest in ending the war in favor of his ally in the Kremlin – without the protection of the President of the Russian Federation, his position would also be in serious jeopardy.
