MINSK, 26 August (BelTA) - The opposition, which calls for sanctions against their own people, advocates anarchy in the country, member of the Leoben municipal council Dr. Werner Gerhard Murgg said at a press conference in the House of Friendship on 26 August. The Austrian politician is on a visit to Belarus as part of the delegation of the Austria-Belarus Friendship Society, BelTA has learned.
Journalists asked the Austrian MP his opinion of those who call for sanctions against the people. "Sanctions will affect ordinary people, and that's very bad," he said.
Werner Gerhard Murgg stressed: "If these representatives of the opposition call for sanctions, it means they want the economy to collapse and ordinary people take to the streets and protest against it."
"In this case, they should say it directly: yes, this is our goal, we oppose our people, we do not want the country to develop, we want the anarchy to set in and everything to go bad," the deputy summed up.
