According to Gabrielius Landsbergis, Alexander Lukashenko is working on a constitutional amendment that could unite Russia. The situation is reminiscent of Crimea.
Lithuania’s Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis has expressed concern about Russia’s annexation of the former Soviet Republic of Belarus. As Landsbergis said on the sidelines of a meeting of the foreign ministers of the European Union (EU), there is corresponding cooperation between the ruler Alexander Lukashenko and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The Belarusian ruler is working to amend the constitution so that it would be possible to make Russia and Belarus one country. Russia is proceeding in a similar way to the annexation of the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea in 2014. “This is Crimea, only on a larger scale,” said Landsbergis.
The EU must now send a signal to Russia.
