There is an increasing number of problems coming from Ukraine with which Belarus has to deal with, Lukashenko said, stressing that the security issues on the Belarussian-Ukrainian border are currently under his foremost attention.
"I'm not even talking about drugs… arms, automatic rifles, ammunition, they [Ukrainians] are coming here themselves. We're fortifying our border. We have completely shut it down, and now building engineering structures underneath which even a mouse couldn't crawl in," the Belarussian President said.
The president also said that statements of those Belarussian citizens fighting in Ukraine on the side of the Kiev government, who eventually want to come back and "teach Lukashenko a lesson," are nothing, but empty words.
Slovakia and Hungary have also ramped up security at their border with Ukraine due to the rise of the Right Sector extremist group after they clashed with the local police in Ukraine's Zakarpattia region, leaving three people dead and 13 injured.
