“As far as our participation in the special military operation in Ukraine is concerned, we’re participating in it,” he said.

“We don’t hide it. But we don’t kill anyone. We don’t send our military personnel anywhere. We don’t violate our commitments.”

At the same time, Lukashenko tried to justify himself and stated that his country’s participation is allegedly limited “to preventing the spread of this conflict into Belarus’ territory.”

“Secondly, to preventing a strike on Belarus from Poland, Lithuania, and Latvia under the guise of the special military operation,” the dictator said.

“As I’ve said, nobody is going to shoot Russians in the back from Belarus’ territory. This is our participation.”
