Belarus Will Support Russia in the Event of Aggression From Ukraine, Lukashenko Says

If Russia faces aggression from Ukraine, Minsk will support Moscow, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said in an interview with RIA Novosti.

"If Russia faces aggression from Ukraine, we will be closely teaming up — economically, legally, and politically — with Russia. This is the main thing,” Lukashenko said.

He stressed that he would never be "on the side of the nationalist intoxication that is taking place in Ukraine today."

“I will do everything to make Ukraine ours. It is our Ukraine, our people there. These are not emotions, this is my firm conviction,” the head of the Belarusian state said.

Lukashenko previously announced his plans to visit Crimea, saying that his trip would mean its recognition as part of Russia by Minsk.

"We all understood that Crimea is de facto Russian Crimea. After the referendum, Crimea became Russian de jure."
