Lukashenko responds to possible sanctions as thousands of migrants camp in freezing temperatures at Poland border
Alexander Lukashenko has threatened to cut deliveries of gas to Europe via a major pipeline as the Belarusian leader promised to retaliate against any new EU sanctions imposed in response to the crisis at the Poland-Belarus border.
