Belarus President Alyaksandr Lukashenka met with the head of the EU Delegation to Belarus Andrea Wiktorin and commented on the situation in Ukraine. “We have a common problem and trouble – Ukraine… This is a headache and pain for the European Union and it needs to be be healed a soon as possible,” Lukashenka said.

The governance problem in Ukraine ‘has been more or less solved’ after the recent presidential and parliamentary elections, Lukashenka said. It is essential that the situation in Ukraine is stabilized and the Belarusian President is expecting Brussels to render assistance. “I am asking you to pass this signal to the European Union no matter how difficult it may be for you now when you are leaving for another country [Wiktorin will represent the EU interests in Armenia - Euroradio]: Ukraine needs support,” Lukashenka’s press service quotes the president as saying.

Kyiv is oriented towards Brussels more than towards Moscow or Minsk. That is why the European Union that said “A” should also say “B” and support the Ukrainian people now, according to Belarus president.
