The Ukrainian government on Monday said Belarusian President Lukashenko’s Independence Day message was “ironic” and accused Russia of allowing Russia to attack Ukraine.
On the 31st anniversary of Ukraine’s independence from the former Soviet Union, Lukashenko addressed the Ukrainian people on his website: “Peaceful skies, tolerance, courage, strength and success to restore a decent life.” ” and an unexpected message is posted. “I am convinced that the current war cannot destroy the centuries-old foundation of the sincere and good neighborly relations between our two peoples,” he said.
Advisor to the head of the Ukrainian president’s office, Podlyak, took to Twitter to criticize Lukashenko’s statement. “Mr Lukashenko truly believes that the world is unaware of his complicity in the crimes against Ukraine,” he said. I am especially praying for a ‘peaceful sky’.”
Belarus is an ally of Russia, allowing Moscow to send thousands of troops from Belarusian territory to neighboring Ukraine and launch missiles from its airspace.
