Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makei said that Minsk would not develop trade, economic and political relations with Brussels to the detriment of Russia.


Minsk rejected plans to be friends with the EU to the detriment of Russia


The development of our ties with Russia, and with the European Union, and with the rest of the world does not mean that we want to be friends with someone at the expense of someone or against someone. We are developing our trade, economic and political relations with the European Union, while telling our partners that we in no way intend to be friends with you at the expense of Russia or against, or to the detriment of Russia
- leads RIA NewsMcKay's words referring to his Xinhua interview.

According to the minister, Belarus can only survive through normal relations with all global players in the region and the world, and in politics it adheres to the principle of non-confrontational status.

We really are at the junction between the East and the West - such is the fate of Belarus. We feel all the negative consequences that arise from the confrontation in this region today.
- said Foreign Minister.

Makei stressed that for Minsk “Russia is of paramount importance as a strategic partner in all respects: political, military-political, trade and economic, humanitarian and so on.”

    They will not be able to quarrel Belarus with Russia, since the example of Ukraine in Belarus is before our eyes. Belarus does not expect anything good if it turns its back on Russia.
    Although Lukashenko sometimes threatens Russia with regard to gas prices and so on - if you don’t give it, then it will be worse for you — all the same, I hope Lukashenko perfectly understands that if there are at least fraternal peoples and history are connected in addition to everything, in the EU nafig nobody needs except the use of Belarus in the fight against Russia.

        The geographical center of Europe is Austria-Hungary. 47 * 56,3 "N and 24 * 11,30" ID. In 1887 there is a 2-meter geodetic mark. Ukraine also screamed tongue that she is the center of Europe, where is she now ?! belay

                There is the CENTER of Europe. And the Urals is the eastern border of Europe. So, the modern expression “Eastern European”, calling the countries from the Baltic to the Black Sea (Lithuania, Poland, Hungary, Romania, etc.) does not correspond to geographical reality. yes

        I will answer you with a quote from one pretty interesting book ...

        Do not pay attention to the words of Lukashenko. Look at his affairs. Lukashenko is a great patriot of a single country. Just when distributing roles in a political theater, he got the role of an evil investigator. To this was added an explosive disposition and a complex character.
        Hence the mass of controversy, sharp expressions of the father and always a mild reaction to all this of the leaders of Russia. They know very well that Lukashenko is that rare case when you can trust. Do not betray in any case. And they appreciate it and forgive a lot of things.
        That’s the whole mystery of Lukashenko.


        And then think for yourself ... yes

    Meat and other goods to (from) Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, etc. carry companies, firms and ordinary people. It seems to me that in some districts of Gomel oblast there they make good money on this (as in the Grodno region and the Brest region in the Poles). But they were, are and will be caught by certain special services of Belarus and Russia.
