In connection with the demise of Iran President Ebrahim Raisi Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made a statement criticizing the vile policy of the United States of America, APA reports citing BelTA.

Aleksandr Lukashenko described Ebrahim Raisi as a kind friend of both Belarus and Russia. “He was a normal, kind man, who maintained a sincere and honest dialogue with us and was concerned about the development of his own state and about protecting interests of his own nation. How it happened and the rest… A lot is being said about it now. I think Iran is a country capable of finding out what happened there,” the head of state noted.

Talking as a person and not a president, Aleksandr Lukashenko also mentioned the vile policy of the United States of America, which had brought about Ebrahim Raisi’s demise. “I mean sanctions first of all. Those scoundrels had no right to introduce sanctions against vessels (aircraft, helicopters) that transport people. They have introduced sanctions against vessels in Russia, against us. Against my aircraft, for instance. They will not be able to get Vladimir Vladimirovich [Putin] because his aircraft is of Russian make. But they have introduced these sanctions. Is that normal? People need to move about. You’ve’ sold this vessel. It doesn’t matter whether this helicopter has existed for 40 or 50 years. It may have flown only three times over the course of 50 years and could have been in good state if it had been serviced properly. But they have forbidden their companies to offer maintenance. This is why they also share the guilt for it. They forbade servicing this helicopter. I know it for sure,” he said.
