Press service of the President of the Republic of Belarus
The leader recalled that Belarus is the main transit country between Russia and the EU. And if Poland decides for its part to completely close the border, and Brussels – to impose sanctions, then Minsk will completely block any transportation, including gas supplies via the Yamal-Europe pipeline.
“We are heating Europe, they are still threatening us that they will close the border. And if we turn off natural gas there? Therefore, I would recommend that the Polish leadership, Lithuanians and other headless people think before speaking. But that’s their business. If they shut it down, let them shut it down. But the Foreign Ministry must warn everyone in Europe: if only they impose additional sanctions on us, “indigestible” and “unacceptable” for us, we must answer, ”BelTA news agency quoted Lukashenka as saying.
The situation on the Polish-Belarusian border remains extremely tense due to migrants from the Middle East arriving at the EU borders. Warsaw admits the possibility of a complete closure of the border with Belarus and demands the introduction of new sanctions against the country’s President Alexander Lukashenko.
