Lukashenko: Chernobyl-hit regions in Belarus are back to life 

KOSTYUKOVICHI, 30 April (BelTA) – The state has saved the regions affected by the Chernobyl accident and thus the country, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he talked to residents of the town of Kostyukovichi on 30 April, BelTA has learned.

"I'm not saying that my today’s trip is akin to the president's Chernobyl itinerary. Do you remember it? Today, we talk less about it, because we realized that we brought the 25% of the territory back to life and thus saved our country. People live here, the birth rate here is even higher than in the rest of the country," Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
The president assured that the state will continue to financially support large families. The situation with the birth rate is the biggest problem for many countries, including Belarus. "We are responsible for our land, and it is very important for us," the head of state emphasized. “Families with three children should receive housing out of turn. I'm not even talking about four or five children… This should be supported in every possible way."
