Lukashenko: Ukraine becomes outpost for political provocations in Belarus

EU Doesn't Recognise Alexander Lukashenko as President of Belarus

He accused Western countries of direct interference in the situation in the republic, noting that the demonstrations are directed by the United States, and that the Europeans "play along" with them.

Protesters in Belarus have flooded the streets of the Belarusian capital and other cities denouncing Lukashenko's landslide reelection in the August 9 vote as rigged.

The former Soviet state farm boss travelled to Russian Federation on Monday for his first talks with President Vladimir Putin since the crisis began, coming away with a $1.5 billion loan to prop up his Soviet-style command economy.

Sergei Naryshkin, director of Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service, claimed in a statement carried by Russian news agencies Wednesday that the USA has funded the Belarusian opposition and encouraged the protests.

Lithuania and its Baltic neighbors Latvia and Estonia have blacklisted Lukashenko and dozens of other Belarusian officials over the violence, while Lithuania opened its borders to Belarusians fleeing the country, including opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya.

Human rights groups are working with opposition activists to identify the officers and officials, Tsikhanouskaya said, adding that the list will be shared with the United States, the European Union and Russian Federation.

Putin, in comments broadcast on television from talks alongside Lukashenko in Russia's Sochi, said he thought a proposal by the Belarusian strongman to carry out constitutional reform was logical and timely.

He did not specify which weapons he had requested from Putin and the Kremlin later denied Putin and Lukashenko had discussed supplying Belarus with new arms, the TASS news agency reported. Lukashenko said the two countries should plan more drills of the same kind. North Atlantic Treaty Organisation officials have said they will closely monitor the situation in Belarus.

Poland said Thursday it wants the European Union to offer Belarus financial assistance of at least 1 billion euros ($1.87 billion Cdn) as part of a Marshall Plan-type effort to rebuild Belarus.

Without providing any evidence, Naryshkin said the US was providing millions of dollars to opposition groups in the country.

Lukashenko stated that the the center of the destabilization in the country is the US and Poland, Lithuania, the Czech Republic and Ukraine play the role of the USA satellites in the European continent.

According to the president, the tactics of the organizers of the protests were built according to the typical American book of color revolutions.
