Lukashenko: Belarus can send goods through the ports of the Russian Federation
Belarus can close the borders with Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, and redirect the cargo traffic to Russian ports in the Baltic. According to BelTA agency, this was stated by the President of the Republic Alexander Lukashenko.
Earlier, the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Lithuania Rita Tamashunene signed an order prohibiting entry into the country of 30 citizens of Belarus, including Lukashenko. The Foreign Ministries of Latvia and Estonia announced similar sanctions.
“We will not fight to be allowed there. We will simply try to solve this problem economically. They say it will be more expensive for Belarus, “- admitted the Belarusian leader, referring to the reorientation of cargo from the Baltic ports to Russia.
” Of course, it will not be profitable for us a little. But we can agree with the Russians on tariffs. And they will still benefit from the volumes of our cargo transshipment, “Lukashenko emphasized.
Commenting on the imposition of sanctions by the Baltic states, the President of Belarus noted that Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn simply” got out from under the fence “when they were the “fas” command. According to him, “more seasoned countries” realize that “there is no need to bully with Belarus”, since it can close the borders near Brest and Grodno. And thus will greatly complicate the exit to the East for the German cargoes.
Why did the Baltic states take up arms against Lukashenka
Massive protest actions of the opposition began throughout Belarus on August 9, after the presidential elections. On them, according to the CEC, Lukashenka won for the sixth time, gaining 80.1% of the vote. The opposition believes that Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, not Lukashenko, won the election.
In the early days, the actions were suppressed by the security forces. Tear gas, water cannons, stun grenades, rubber bullets were used against the protesters who disagreed with the results. Then the law enforcement agencies stopped dispersing the rallies and using force. According to official figures, in the first days more than 6,700 people were detained.
As reported by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the republic, hundreds of people were injured during the riots, including over 120 law enforcement officers. According to authorities, three protesters have died. : ///
