The recognition of the temporarily occupied Crimea as "Russian" will be a point of no return in relations between Ukraine and Belarus. This was stated to journalists by Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba on the margins of the NATO ministerial meeting in Riga, reports UNN correspondent.
"Of course, the possible recognition of the occupied Crimea by Belarus will be a point of no return in our bilateral relations, and we will act accordingly, because Crimea for us is not a field for compromise," the minister said.
According to Kuleba, Ukraine already views Belarus as a potential source of threat to the country.
"We have already allocated serious resources to our northern border with Belarus. So, we now have a northern flank to protect our country," he added.
Recall, Alexander Lukashenko the day before announced his intention to visit the temporarily occupied Crimea. He also spoke about recognizing the peninsula as "part of Russia.
