Transcript of the interview with Alexander Lukashenko
Journalist: What is your attitude to Bashar Assad?
Lukashenko: Excellent! I have met him very many times. If you would meet him – you would undoubtedly like him. Absolutely European civil man.
J.: He is just doing not really European…
A.L.: This is YOU who is doing. What are you doing there? What is your business there? You are supplying arms, your special forces are there. Supplying arms, giving money. Do you think someone would fight there without money and arms? How is it that suddenly someone came and messed up the country?
J.: What will be the outcome of the situation in Syria?
A.L.: For you it will be disastrous.
J.: No.. for Syrians, for Syrian people..
A.L.: Catastrophic. For the Syrian people this is already disaster. You are destroying yet another country.
J.: So, you think that overthrowing regimes in all countries was wrong? Starting from Iraq, Afghanistan, the same Syria, Lybia, Egypt, Tunisia.
A.L.: You called it incorrectly. It was the crime! It was the crime.
J.: Even though many people rebelled against the leaders?
A.L.: It was the crime. My evaluation is univocal. And you will pay for that!
J.: What do you mean?
A.L.: The things that are happening. You are afraid of terrorism, but you already got it. You created it with your own hands. You will see yet what will happen. You should not do it. You shouldn’t. Nobody needs your democracy through killings. The millions of killed people and their relatives … and you know what it means for Muslims… blood revenge… they will never forgive it. N-E-V-E-R! You don’t think what can happen tomorrow.
Comments of Russian netizens
[Note: Alexander Lukashenko has a nickname "bac'ka" translated as "daddy"]
avatar5100: No need to complicate the simple thing: If innocent people are being killed, then those who are doing it are FAGGOTS. And it does not matter what goals they are pursuing.не нужно усложнять ничего, всё просто: если есть гибель неповинных беззащитных людей, то ПИДАРЫ те кто это делают. и не важно какие цели они приследуют.
[Note: Botox is one of Putin's nicknames]
wter2011: Bac’ka is so brave in his comments and crtitic because he is doing it with the approval of Moscow, since Kremlin and Putin cannot afford talking in such way.То что батька так всех смело критикует и осуждает, он это делает с подачи кремля т.к. сам кремль и путин такого позволить себе сказать просто не могут.
