President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that if his country asks, it can be organized in Ukraine local elections in certain districts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions and ”restore order” on the border of Ukraine and Russia in the Donbas.
He said this on Thursday November 17 at a press conference for Russian journalists and bloggers in Minsk, reported the Belarusian information company «BelaPAN.»
«Today, the Donbas does not need Russia. Why? After all, it’s completely destroyed and in Russia own problems,» — said Lukashenko.
«But Ukraine understands that alone the Donbass, if he stays in its composition, it will not restore,» he added. According to Lukashenko, as soon as the conflict will calm down and the media stops talking about it, about Donbass «will be forgotten and they will remain at their interest.»
Noting the position of Belarus in this conflict, he said: «We are ready to play any role just for the sake of there was peace.»
Lukashenko said that the conflict has already had dire consequences for Ukraine, and they are undesirable for Russia.
«I told Vladimir Vladimirovich (Putin): whatever it takes, you need to think of something to start the reverse process – the restoration of relations», — said the President of Belarus, stressing that «the winners in this massacre will not.»
Lukashenko also said that Belarus made proposals to resolve the situation in Ukraine and the West, and Russia: «if the parties, especially the West, are silent – means they do not want peace in Ukraine.»
If Belarus asks for, she can arrange in Ukraine, the local elections and «restore order» on the part of the boundaries of the Donets basin, Ukraine and Russia, said Lukashenko. But «do not climb», he added.
Commenting on the talks that if Belarus will support Russia and «push North», it will not be Ukraine, Lukashenko said: «I again say I will not go on a tank in Kyiv, the tractor will come. We are ready to work only to have the situation settled down and calmed down». He assured that Belarus is ready «to solve any problem in Ukraine, even if, at first sight, it is not necessary and profitable.»
Recall that two years ago already circularities information that Lukashenko is ready to send its peacekeepers to Ukraine. However, the head of Belarus later explained that his words were twisted and generally misunderstood.
As reported in August in Belarus 230 General range «Obuz-lesnovskiy» (near the city of Baranovichi in the Brest region) has held exercises «Indestructible brotherhood-2016», which took part in the military of the Russian Federation, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. Finished the forming and placement of the Collective peacekeeping forces of the collective security Treaty organization (CSTO KMS).
Recall, the Organization of collective security Treaty (CSTO, Tashkent Treaty) is the military-political international organization, which includes Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.
It was reported that the Collective peacekeeping forces of the collective security Treaty organization (CSTO KMS) for the first time will receive the mandate of the UN Security Council and will act in a crisis region, in collaboration with the UN mission. «For the formation of international confidence in the actions of KMS CSTO involved units of the psychological warfare and information warfare. A doctrine will be gradually expanded by the action of KMS of the CSTO in the context of mass arrival of displaced from areas of armed conflict persons (refugees), «- said then the Ministry of defence of the Republic of Belarus and added that these elements will increase the regular components of teaching (creation of buffer zones, breeding of the conditional opponents, blocking and disarming of the militias, support humanitarian goods) and will allow you to test the real degree of readiness of staff, the commanders and fighters of the peacekeepers to act in the face of the deteriorating crisis situation.
Then, in August, the permanent representative of Ukraine to the United Nations Volodymyr Yelchenko informed that Ukraine has already prepared the draft documents for the decision to send UN peacekeepers to the Donbass, and said that Kyiv hopes for constructive cooperation with the new Secretary General of the organization.
