Belarus’ Lukashenko Says Armenia ‘Can’t Escape’ Union State With Russia


Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko believes the Union State with Russia could in the near future include other countries as well, such as Armenia, which he said “can’t escape it”.

“Armenia can’t escape it. You think anyone needs them? They have already seen it,” Lukashenko said in an interview with Russian journalist Vladimir Solovyov.

He added that Belarus is already in the common “security space”, and Kazakhstan has learnt a “good lesson”. Ukraine, he maintained, may end up there within 15 years “if no mistakes are made”.

“And Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, I think, will also join due to economic necessity,” Lukashenko noted.

The Union State is a supranational organization consisting of Russia and Belarus, “with the stated aim of deepening the relationship between the two states through integration in economic and defense policy.”


PanARMENIAN Network is the first Armenian online news and analytical agency and one of the most cited Armenian informational resources worldwide.

    The south Caucasus is a very complex and unforgiving place. Armenians are too political illiterate and self-destructive. The quicker Armenia enters into a union Russia, the faster will the nightmare of the past 30 years end.

      Going backwards eh? Defeatist attitude for sure. I hope others don’t buy into this kind of thinking.
