Kuleba Named Circumstances under Which Ukraine Will Cut Ties with Lukashenka’s Belarus
Wednesday, 3 August 2022
Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba said it is necessary to sever diplomatic relations with Belarus if its army intervenes in Ukraine. The Russians regularly attack Ukraine from the territory of Belarus.
Dmytro Kuleba said in an interview with Ukrinform that he remembers the assurance from Minsk that there is no threat to Ukraine from the territory of Belarus. But Kyiv was attacked across the Belarusian border.
"We have no illusions about Belarus. We have a sober analysis of what is happening and how not to give Lukashenka additional reasons to make certain decisions. I have already said this publicly, and my position has not changed. If the Belarusian armed forces intervene in Ukraine, I will immediately propose to sever diplomatic relations with them," he said.
He emphasized that Belarus is definitely an accomplice to the crime against Ukraine and "there are no excuses for them and there will not be any."
