MINSK, November 26. /TASS/. Belarusian Foreign Minister Vladimir Makey has announced that the step taken by Ukraine to join the sanctions imposed by the European Union against Minsk is a non-independent move which will not be left unanswered.

“We cannot but view this step as completely hostile and as an attempt to interfere in Belarusian domestic affairs. Ukraine’s joining the EU sanctions is another, as we see it, non-independent decision of Kiev which demonstrates that our southern neighbors are advancing inconsistent policies. To be honest, we consider this practically as mockery of common sense,” Makey said Thursday as he summarized the results of the meeting of the Russian and Belarusian Foreign Ministries’ boards.

According to him, Ukraine “is trying to paint itself as an ideal in terms of respecting human rights and democracy.” “Ukraine is not a paragon in human rights for us and cannot act as a mentor or teacher in this situation for Belarus,” the minister stressed.
