"We have prepared a sanctions list against a number of officials from Ukraine. So far, we will see how events will develop, but we will not leave unanswered any claims directed against Belarus, "Vladimir Makei said at a joint meeting of the boards of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belarus and Russia.
The Belarusian Foreign Minister emphasized that the words of the Ukrainian side about "concern for Belarusian people are sometimes puzzling." "Kiev announced the need to pause all relations, as well as the pressure for democracy to come to Belarus, as they call it. After all these words, Ukraine joins the sanctions against Belarus," said Vladimir Makei.
The Foreign Minister of Belarus called the logic of the Ukrainian authorities "perverse," and also noted that Minsk "categorically does not welcome this approach." Such actions are "a mockery of common sense," Vladimir Makei emphasized.
