Another phone call between Putin and Lukashenko



Because of the crisis surrounding the migrants on the Belarusian-Polish border, Russian President Vladimir Putin called the Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenko again.

Minsk / Moscow – Because of the crisis surrounding migrants on the Belarusian-Polish border, Russian President Vladimir Putin called the Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenko again. The Kremlin announced in Moscow on Tuesday that it was about the situation in the border area. In addition, the two heads of state had discussed how the borders of the common union state could be protected, reported the Belarusian state agency Belta. Details were initially not given. Both had already phoned last week.

Lukashenko informed Putin about his phone call with Chancellor Angela Merkel the day before. It was Merkel’s first conversation with the ruler since the controversial presidential election in Belarus last August. The EU no longer recognizes Lukashenko as president because of the actions of the security forces against peaceful demonstrators.

Belarusian political scientist Valery Karbelevich said after the phone call that Lukashenko was practically recognized as president again. “Lukashenko achieved what he wanted.” It is a success for the system that the EU and Merkel sought a conversation with the power apparatus. Lukashenko announced a second phone call with Merkel after planned talks with the Chancellor at EU level. Government spokesman Steffen Seibert had previously announced that the exchange should continue. (dpa)
