Belarusian President Lukashenko rules out appearance of Russian tanks in Poland

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said after parliamentary elections that Belarus and Russia are not going to send tanks against Poland, reports BelTA.

The Belarusian President pointed out that Belarus has always been open to Poland, as it is one of the countries closest to it. He also added that Belarus is ready for close, friendly relations with Poland.

According to Lukashenko, when such relations began to develop between Minsk and Warsaw, Poland began to "play along" with the European Union and the United States. "Never lie to the Poles that here we are creating  some kind of alliance with Russia to send tanks against you. This will never happen," said Belarusian President.

On November 17, the Belarusian President said that Poland had made a mistake by not inviting Vladimir Putin to events marking the 80th anniversary of the start of World War II.

"That was a wrong decision," said Lukashenko, referring to the fact that Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and other countries played a huge role in the liberation of Poland from Nazi invaders.
