Kiselev about the statements of Lukashenko – Rambler / news

TV presenter Dmitry Kiselev in his program "News of the Week" said that the President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, confuses fruits with vegetables and wants to close an efficient oil pipeline for repairs. The release of the program was published on the Russia 24 YouTube channel.
So Kiselev commented on the statements of Lukashenko, outraged by the ban on the import of Belarusian products into Russia. On April 10, the Rosselkhoznadzor banned importing Belarusian apples and pears into the country. The reason was the suspicion that under the guise of Belarusian products in the Russian Federation they were trying to import fruit from sanctioned countries.

Lukashenko was indignant that in Russia they constantly prohibit "either carrots, or lettuce, or not like cucumbers". He compared the actions of Russian colleagues with sanctions and called on his ministers to take "appropriate measures." According to Lukashenka, in Russia “they are so insolent that they begin to twist their arms” to Belarusians.

“Lukashenka confused carrots and cucumbers with apples and pears, but for some reason decided to stop repairing a fully functional Druzhba pipeline, thereby annoying Russia,” Kiselev said.

Lukashenko declared that Belarus should stop “putting a cheek” and ordered to stop oil pipelines with Russian oil if they need repair, regardless of possible damage to the Russian Federation.

The Belarusian president said that last year Minsk did not close emergency oil pipelines so that Russia would not suffer damage. However, Moscow, in his opinion, does not care about the interests of the Belarusian partners.

According to Kiselev, the Kremlin has responded to these statements with “pacifying words.” A spokesman for the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, said that the Russian authorities are supporters of a tonality that is more in line with the allied relations of the two countries, but they are sympathetic to “emotional remarks”.
Also, the presenter drew attention to the "calm position" of "Transneft". The company's president, Nikolai Tokarev, said that the pipelines in Belarus are in a satisfactory condition, but at the same time offered Minsk any help with repairs.
