Euroradio

The Belarusian President has met Ukrainian Ambassador Mikhail Yezhel today.

Our country is ready to render assistance to Ukraine but is against any mediation, Alyaksandr Lukashenka told the Ambassador.

"If you need any help from Belarus (but it should not be mediation), I will be ready to render any assistance as a person who takes everything that is going on in Ukraine to the heart,” interfax.by quotes Lukashenka.

Meanwhile, Lukashenka is against any attempts to make Ukraine join some military blocks and does not want any troops to cross the Ukrainian border. No troops should enter Ukraine from either side, he thinks.
