Lukashenko: A Third World War with Nuclear Fire is on the Horizon

The Belarusian leader and close ally of the Kremlin, Alexander Lukashenko, called for a "ceasefire" in Ukraine and for negotiations "without preconditions" between Moscow and Kyiv, AFP reported.

"I will take the risk of proposing a cessation of hostilities..., a ceasefire," Lukashenko said during his State of the Nation address. "All territorial, restorative, security and other issues can and should be resolved at the negotiating table, without preconditions."

Lukashenko said the West's support for Kyiv increases the likelihood of a nuclear war breaking out in Ukraine.

"As a result of the efforts of the United States and its satellites, a full-scale war has broken out in Ukraine, ... a third world war with nuclear fire is on the horizon," the president said in a televised address to lawmakers and Belarusians, adding that it can only be avoided through negotiations.

"No one wants to experience the consequences of insane and sanction wars. People do not understand how the ideology of the global international project for sustainable development can be compatible with unprecedented hunger, epidemics, moral degradation and rampant abnormal values. This has never happened before in world history," Lukashenko said.
