Moscow is ready to facilitate efforts to resolve a migrant crisis on the border between Belarus and the EU but the West must not accuse Russia of everything for no reason, as stated by the Russian President Vladimir Putin in an interview with the Rossiya-1 TV channel “Moscow. Kremlin. Putin” show.
“When we hear some statements and accusations against us, I would like to tell everyone: mind your own domestic issues, don’t try to shift them to others because it is your related agencies that need to resolve them. However, we are ready to do our utmost [to help resolve the situation] if there is anything we can do,” Putin said.
According to Putin, western countries seek to avoid responsibility for a migration crisis on the border between Belarus and the EU. He stressed that it was already said that Russia has nothing to do with it and if somebody has a will to accuse the country, he will have it on his own conscience.
“I have already explained why, there are political, military and economic reasons. They were the ones who created conditions where thousands, even hundreds of thousands of people left their homes. And now they are looking for someone to blame in order to avoid responsibility for what is happening,” Putin noted.
