Lukashenko: “Honestly Speaking, I Didn’t Expect the Operation to Drag On Like This”
Luka not in awe of the "special military operation"
Here is one intellectually honest person who hasn’t shifted his goalposts. Luka says this isn’t what he expected (probably because this isn’t what was sold to him).
“Honestly speaking, I didn’t expect the operation to drag on like this. But I am that not immersed in this problem to be able to say whether everything is proceeding according to plan, like the Russians say — or, the way I feel. I want to stress one more time, I feel like this operation is taking too long.”
“Russia can not lose this war. We must proceed on this basis.”
“We are seeing it now: the United States of America wants to seize the moment – by linking with its allies to drown Russia in war in Ukraine. This is their goal: to deal with Russia, then with China.”
