“You’ll never see it. Belarus is not the Middle East, and the Belarusian leadership’s and the Middle Eastern leaders’ policies differ radically. Some here tried to blow up the situation, but nothing came of it. Nothing of the sort will ever happen, I promise you,” Lukashenko said in an interview with Reuters, excerpts of which the presidential press service has published.
“If someone thinks revolutionary changes will happen here, this won’t happen. Belarus has exhausted its limit of revolutions, and therefore it’s necessary to be patient and calmly make these changes for the better. We welcome evolutionary changes, but there will never be revolutions here,” Lukashenko said.
He also said he believes relations between Belarus and the EU could be normalized, but this will happen without Europe’s diktat and sanctions.
