The Russian Ambassador made attempts by other countries to divide Moscow and Minsk

Russian Ambassador in Belarus Dmitry Mezentsev admitted that third countries are attempting to divide Russia and Belarus, and in future such attempts will be more "tough and elegant".

"(Young people) don't understand the tension and the threats that can arise if we lose and the defence potential of our relations in the CSTO. And, most importantly, allow yourself to think that you can tear Russia from Belarus, and Belarus from Russia", - said Mezentsev during an online-conference, devoted to prospects of development of Russian-Belarusian relations.

The diplomat expressed confidence that this will not happen, "although attempts must have been taken".

"And tomorrow will be made even more stringent attempts and more graceful, not always decent. But General conversations with millions of people that we need each other is not only profitable. It is also support humanitarian, cultural tradition. This conversation, I think, very important," said Mezentsev.
