President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko asked Russian President Vladimir Putin to provide new weapons. Lukashenka also said that Russia will continue to support Belarus.

“I also asked the Russian president about certain types of weapons. Recent events show that we need to be bolder in protecting the interests of both Belarusians and Russians. It so happened that we were left alone in this regard, but not the weakest,” Lukashenko said.

He added that Belarus and Russia can keep the situation along the border of the two countries.

“If someone thinks that Belarus has weakened, that we will not stand, that Russia will step aside, this is for fools reasoning. You can not doubt our reliability in terms of the defense of our common Fatherland – from Brest to Vladivostok,” Lukashenko added.
