Lukashenko urges to clean up neglected lands
MINSK, 25 July (BelTA) – Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has ordered to pay more attention to keeping land clean and tidy not only in cities and towns and along the major transport routes, but also in the most remote places of Belarus. Alexander Lukashenko made this statement during a working trip to Minsk District where he inspected the course of the harvesting on 25 July, BelTA has learnt.
Alexander Lukashenko emphasized that he can see how things are not only when he travels along the major highways, but also during his trips to various regions, including the most remote areas. The President remembered one of his recent private trips to the area located at the juncture of Mogilev Oblast and Vitebsk Oblast. “As I got into this very out-of-the-way place, I saw disgusting attitude to some fields. They think that no one will see it as it is located far away. This is I-couldn't-care-less attitude. It was on the territory supervised by Kosinets (Vitebsk Oblast Governor Alexander Kosinets – BelTA's note),” the Belarusian leader said.
The President emphasized that people, in particular those living in cottages and in the countryside, should be actively involved in cleaning up untidy and neglected land. Alexander Lukashenko said that the clean up activities should be spearheaded by both public and private initiative.
The head of state ordered to apply the toughest punishment, up to confiscation of vehicles, to those who pollute the environment by dumping trash in the undesignated places.
