Milinkevich: Belarus should head for independence

The leader of the movement “For Freedom” Alyaksandr Milinkevich has given an interview to ERB and discoursed on the steps that should be made by the country’s administration in the situation of aggravation of Belarusian-Russian relations. Alyaksandr Mіlіnkevіch: “Belarus should be an independent state having good-neighborly, mutually beneficial and equitable relations. There should be a border between independent states. However, it can be defined in different ways: with the help of scandals or negotiations. We do not think it is necessary to create a union state. It will always mean the absorption of Belarus”.

Speaking about the position of the EU in the current situation, Alyaksandr Milinkevich says the following:

“I do not think that Europe will buy all Belarusian milk in response to the fact that it cannot be sold in Russia… We should simply head for the state’s independence”. Then the relations with Russia will be regulated as market relations. They should be market, not brotherly. Market relations regulate everything and I am sure we will soon switch to them. It will be same with Europe too. Europe is not interested in reacting to certain problems all the time; it is interested in stabilizing the Belarusian economy, modernizing it and making Belarus a more independent state”.
