MINSK, 19 April (BelTA) – Instead of simply helping people buy homes in the countryside the government should create proper living standards over there. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the relevant statement as he answered questions from parliamentarians after delivering his address to the nation and the parliament on 19 April, BelTA has learned.
Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “We shouldn't just help people buy a house in the countryside. We should help people, who are ready to live and work there. It can be done via the municipal authorities or by people pooling financial resources. It needs to be analyzed. If we work out the mechanism, people on the spot will decide how to help people willing to buy a vacant house or repair a dilapidated one. However, to make it happen, it is necessary to build standard homes in specific villages under the government oversight and offer them to the market in order to learn the price. There is little time for it. We should see these homes in autumn.”More about President
