Belarusian dictator Alyaksandr Lukashenka said that the “only mistake” of Russia and Belarus was that they “did not resolve the “Ukraine issue” in 2014-2015, when Ukraine had no army and was not prepared, Politico quotes the Belarusian dictator.

– The only mistake we made was probably that we did not solve this issue in 2014-2015, when Ukraine did not have an army. We wanted to settle this peacefully. However, they used this time to create combat-ready armed forces, Lukashenko said on Thursday in Minsk during a meeting with the heads of security agencies of the former Soviet bloc countries belonging to the Commonwealth of Independent States. His statement is reported by Politico.

“We saw it coming,” the dictator said, referring to the Russian invasion. – If the war had not started last year, it would have started later, but with worse conditions for Russia and Belarus, he added.

Lukashenka – Putin’s puppet

Lukashenko’s statement, according to Politico, indicates that he has fully come to terms with his transformation into a puppet Vladimir Putin.

For almost three decades in power, Lukashenko maintained a toxic relationship with Putin, balancing between love and hate. But after the Kremlin helped him fend off mass street protests following the rigged 2020 presidential election, the Belarusian dictator bet everything on Putin, helping Moscow launch a full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 from its territory Belarus Politico commented.
