“We had elections, albeit according to some lofty canons and not ideal, but the people, with their majority, it is difficult to question today, have determined their winner,” the minister said to RIA Novosti.

He asked the question on what basis “the EU representatives put themselves on a par with the Belarusian people and consider themselves entitled to single-handedly pass verdicts on the acceptability of the election results for Belarusians”.

"What will the world end up with if every external player begins to directly challenge the results of the electoral process in other countries?"

- said Makei.

Earlier, the head of EU diplomacy, Josep Borrell, during a speech in the European Parliament, called the Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko an illegitimate president, confusing Belarus with Ukraine.

Makei believes that this clause can be used to judge the "depth" of Brussels' possession of the Belarusian dossier.

He also stated "a complete reluctance on the part of the EU to even try to objectively understand the ongoing processes."
