Alexander Lukashenko and Vladimir Putin
President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko did not ask for the supply of new Russian weapons at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin in Sochi. This was stated by the press secretary of the Russian leader Dmitry Peskov, reports RIA Novosti.
“No,” Peskov answered the relevant question. “In general, there is a lot of interaction between the military-industrial complex of the two countries, which fits into our bilateral relations as a whole. But in the wording you said, no, ”he added.
Lukashenko previously met with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and stated to him that he asked Putin “about certain types of weapons.”
“I told him that when you arrive, we will see what and where we need to really strengthen in terms of the Union State. There is nothing to be afraid of, we are ready to go for it. Recent events show that it is necessary to be bolder in protecting the interests of both Belarusians and Russians, ”Lukashenka said.
