As Lukashenka stated during the negotiations, Belarus believes that “blocking of transit” to the Kaliningrad region through Lithuania is a declaration of war.
“Same most and Lithuania. Recently, there has been a growing flow of information about their plan to stop transit from Russia through Belarus to Kaliningrad, to isolate Kaliningrad. Well, listen, this is akin to declaring some kind of war already, this is unacceptable”, – he noted.
In addition, during the talks, Vladimir Putin said that Russia would hand over the Iskander-M. to Belarus in the coming months. TASS writes about this.
“Over the next few months, we will transfer to Belarus “Iskander-M”, which, as you know, can use both ballistic and cruise missiles, and both conventional and nuclear versions. I propose to instruct the Ministry of Defense and the Chief of the General Staff to work out all the details related to this”, – Putin said.
