Lukashenko: Belarus will retaliate against any new EU sanctions, could cut gas

- Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko threatened on Thursday to retaliate against any new European Union sanctions, including by shutting down the transit of natural gas and goods via Belarus.

"We are heating Europe, they are still threatening us that they will close the border. And if we shut off natural gas there? Therefore, I would recommend that the Polish leadership, Lithuanians and other headless people think before speaking," Lukashenko said.
