According to Belsat television, during a meeting in the Belarusian ministry of defense, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko accused Poland and Lithuania of killing migrants on their borders and of trying to break up the European Union.

“Those scoundrels have started killing people. Last night, they dropped a corpse across our border and one more was found tonight. The same bag. They are throwing dead people into bags or half-dead people and leaving them on the border,” Lukashenko said.

He claimed that the West was responsible for the migrants “who were found in very poor conditions in Belarus right next to the border.”

Lukashenko declared that Belarus will not threaten anyone with weapons but stated that his country was prepared to immediately respond in the case of aggression. He told Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko that “any possibility to support the army should be used right now.”

Lukashenko said he believed that the West wanted to cause a war between Russia and Ukraine, using Kiev to accomplish that goal. Belarus is allegedly meant to be drawn into the conflict.

He convinced that there was no reason for Ukraine to be strengthening its border defenses and accused Warsaw and Vilnius of “keeping Belarus in suspense.” He declared that Belarus would side with Moscow in the case of a conflict.

Lukashenko also commented on Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki’s recent visit to the Untied Kingdom and his conversation with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. The Belarusian leader accused Poles and Brits of conspiring.

“I am certain that within one or two years, they want to destroy the European Union on America’s orders,” he said.
