Minsk has something to offer Moscow, Belarus is able to overcome the consequences of sanctions, the president said countries Alexander Lukashenko during a visit to the Russian Vostochny Cosmodrome.

«No one should think that Russia— power, and Belarus is small. Small spool but precious. We know what to put on the scales. We will stand,— quoted by the press service of the head of Belarus.

Lukashenko arrived in Vostochny with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who also spoke of Moscow's ability to deal with restrictive measures. According to the Belarusian president, when visiting the cosmodrome, “there was a feeling that there were no sanctions”: “Everything is mine. You do everything with your own hands. Why are we soaring here because of these sanctions. Why don't we build houses? Let's build. We'll do everything. We need a little time».

A different point of view was expressed on April 10 by the head of the Ministry of Economic Development of Belarus, Alexander Chervyakov, calling the Western sanctions “economic genocide.” The goal of the restrictions, he said, is “to completely destroy a number of industries that are key to our economy.” At the same time, Chervyakov believes that products that enter foreign markets in unfriendly countries (Minsk included 39 states in this list, including all EU countries, Britain, the USA and Canada) are highly competitive in price and quality.

After the presidential elections in Belarus in August 2020, the EU countries and the United States imposed several rounds of sanctions against Minsk, which affected officials, the country's public debt, state-owned companies, including Belavia; and Belorusneft. In addition, as part of the fifth package of EU sanctions against Russia, the EU imposed a ban on the import of potassium chloride from Belarus through its territory.

Lukashenko said in early April that the integration of Belarus and Russia would help to become “stronger than sanctions and diktat.”
