Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko confirmed on Sunday, during his speech at the “We are Belarusians” national forum, that Minsk does not draw any red lines, as there is only one important line, which is the state border.
During his speech, Lukashenko directed a speech to all the peoples of the countries neighboring Belarus: “We are not making plans to interfere in your lives. We wish you only goodness, happiness and peace! But this peace today is so fragile that any movement that shows negligence and recklessness could lead to serious and irreparable consequences.” “It is repairable. I do not really like for our lands to once again become a theater of war, and for millions of our citizens to be wiped out once again.”
Lukashenko stressed that Belarusians do not need what others have, and said: “Remember (I am addressing the peoples of neighboring countries): In the event of aggression against Belarus, we will not draw any red, yellow, black or blue lines! This line already exists, and it is the state’s border.” We have something to respond to, so let’s live together as neighbours!”
The Belarusian President also stressed that: “There will be no war in contemporary conditions on the territory of Belarus. This is impossible because it is impossible. We are the most peace-loving country on earth. We do not wave atomic weapons, nor any Wagner units, nor any other, at anyone. We do not “We threaten no one.”
“But, God forbid, if something happens, we will all become the Brest Fortress,” Lukashenko added.
It is noteworthy that Brest Castle, formerly known as Brest-Litovsk Castle, is a nineteenth-century castle located in the city of Brest in Belarus. The castle was located on the first line of contact when Nazi German forces launched Operation Barbarossa to invade the Soviet Union. On June 22, 1941, the castle withstood the attacking forces for a full week in a desperate defense.
