Russia has no way out but to support Belarus as its interests are over here – Lukashenka

The Russian Federation will help Belarus with refinancing and borrowing more from the Eurasian Development Bank (EDB), president Lukashenka said on Tuesday.

 “Russians via their prime minister and the president, whom I met twice within one week, said directly that they had no way out but to support Belarus because Russian interests are over here, because they depend on Belarus in a lot of things,” state-run news agency BelTA quotes Lukashenka as saying.

Serious negotiations had been held with Dmitry Medvedev and Vladimir Putin, he reminded.

 “The situation is complicated but not deadly. They agree that the situation is not deadly in Belarus or Russia. Yet they see some gaps in financing and so on. They said they would help with refinancing and with borrowing from the Eurasian Development Bank,” the Belarusian leader stressed.

“It is a positive normal trend. We should join hands and get out of the complicated situation together. And we will get out of it. Times were harder in the past,” he warned., following BelTA
