The head of the Belarusian Foreign Ministry, Volodymyr Makei, stated that “today in the European Union we cannot talk about any freedom of speech and the rule of law.”
As an example of this, he cited sanctions. Like, when Minsk tries to “say, to deny any sanctions in the courts of the European Union, it immediately decides to change the rules of the relevant structures, which leave us no hope for a positive result.”
Vladimir Makei told about it in interview to the Russian ZMP, he writes “Mirror”
According to him, this is a “bitter experience” for Belarus.
“We see that in its attempts to isolate, destroy, suffocate our countries (Belarus and Russia – Ed.) European Union, the West as a whole is taking radical measures, violating all its so-called European values, violating all laws and, moreover, – principles of morality, “Makey added.
As reported, Alexander Mr Lukashenko said he would not be able to bring Belarus and the Russian Federation to its knees. The sanctions imposed on Moscow and Minsk because of their actions are forcing them to look for new opportunities, he said.
