Dmitry Medvedev has accused the Belarusian leader of attempts to make Russia one of Belarus's main enemies.
The Russian President has written in his video blog that Alexander Lukahsenko's statements are beyond the scope of diplomatic proprieties and elementary decency.
He levelled criticism at the Minsk leadership for resorting to anti-Russia rhetoric.
Medvedev says that Lukahsenko should have focused on his country's internal affairs.
The Russian leader voiced certainty that the current period of pointless tension would draw to a close with no damage to the two peoples' fraternal relations.
