I think this is totally possible. We are Slavs. We have a heart. Our teams know that immigrants will go to Germany. Some may have helped them. I will not go after that.
Responding to a question, however, he denied that the government had arranged for the entry of migrants to cause a border crisis.
I have already said that I will not arrest immigrants at the border and will not keep them there. If they still come, I will not stop them either, because they have not come to my country, but are going elsewhere. But I did not send the invitation. Truth be told, I do not want them to go through Belarus
