Senator Oleg Morozov noted that possible assistance within the framework of the CSTO, as well as the Union State, can be provided to Minsk only in exceptional situations. According to him, this is provided for by the legal obligations of the parties.
The Federation Council member added that “from the point of view of international law” Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko did not say anything special.
“There are legal obligations of the parties within the framework of the Union State and the CSTO,” added Morozov.
Morozov added that it is more a matter of reminding everyone that “a forceful solution to the Belarusian crisis from the outside is unacceptable and will be suppressed.” At the same time, to resolve internal political problems, the norms of internal Belarusian legislation should be applied, and it excludes any external interference.
Earlier, Lukashenko phoned Putin. They continued their discussion of the situation in Belarus after the presidential elections.
Putin also confirmed his readiness to render assistance to Lukashenka on the basis of the principles of the agreement on the creation of the Union State. If necessary, assistance will be provided through the Collective Security Treaty Organization.
