Foreign Minister of Ukraine Vadym Prystaiko does not rule out that Belarus will have to fight against Russia. He made this assumption in an interview with the Czech newspaper Respekt.

"Several years ago, I spoke with some Belarusian journalists, and when I formally made a statement to them that if they wanted to remain independent, they would have to face the same war, the same hardships and the same suffering as we had, they did not believe me. Maybe, now they have less doubt about it," Prystayko said.

According to him, the President of Belarus has repeatedly heard that Belarusian soldiers would fight.

"And our advice: when you think about Russia, you have two options. With the help of foreign partners, be sensible and calm - and lose. Or start fighting right now," he stated.
