The President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, stated that 'if Russia collapses', CSTO member states will find themselves 'under its ruins', during a speech to the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO) summit in Yerevan on Wednesday.

"Recently, a thesis developed in the media: the fate of the CSTO depends on the operation of the Russian Federation in Ukraine. If Russia wins, the CSTO will live. If God forbid it does not win, the CSTO will not exist. And in our countries too, many hotheads have started discussing this problem. I feel we have come to a consensus that if God forbid Russia collapses, we will find ourselves in its ruins," the Belarusian leader claimed.

Lukashenko also spoke about the priorities for his country’s presidency of CSTO in 2023.

"We are not going to leave the political, military-politicalarena. The CSTO will exist and no one will collapse," he concluded.

The CSTO summit on Wednesday was attended by Lukashenko, as well as Russian President Vladimir Putin, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, Kazakh President Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev, Kyrgyz President Sadyr Zhaparov and Tajik leader Emomali Rahmon.

Politicians discussed current issues of international and regional security, and the main results of the work carried out since the last meeting.
