OREANDA-NEWS. President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that the United States plans and coordinates the political protests in the country.

“They have been preparing this mess for us. And Russia was afraid of losing us. The West decided to bring us up somehow – of course, as we see now, to act against Russia. Now they want to establish the Baltic – Black Sea corridor, a “cordon sanitaire”: the three Baltic republics, our country and Ukraine. We are the last link here. All this is planned and directed by the United States, while the Europeans are playing along with it,” Lukashenko said.

The President of Belarus added that a special center for coordinating protests in Belarus was created near Warsaw. Lukashenko said that the Belarusian side knows what this center does and controls its activities. “You see, when it is restless nearby and tanks begin to move and airplanes fly, it is no coincidence,” he noted.
