Kremlin: Foreign Powers Interfere in Minsk Business
Foreign powers are taking advantage of the crisis in Belarus to interfere in that country’s internal affairs, bestowing to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
He said no outside mediation is needed at all. Lavrov acknowledged that the presidential elections in Belarus did not go well.
He, therefore, hopes that the Belarusian opposition is prepared to enter into talks with the controversial leader Aleksander Lukashenko.
Lavrov said this Wednesday, Russian media reported. According to the minister, Russia sees no reason to interfere with the political crisis in Minsk, not even militarily.
A Kremlin spokesman stressed that Russia sees no reason to assist Belarus militarily or in other areas. They have to solve their problems themselves.
Lukashenko has been in supremacy since 1994 and was re-elected again by an overwhelming majority on August 9. The opposition argues that in reality, he received almost no votes and has remained in power through fraud.
The heads of government of the European Union met on Wednesday at an additional meeting on the situation in Belarus. According to Lukashenko, Western leaders would do better to deal with their own problems.
