Lukashenko compares living standards of traders, military

MINSK, 6 October (BelTA) – People should be treated fairly, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he hosted a government meeting on 6 October, BelTA has learned.

Speaking about retail trade, price growth and product availability, the president urged to maintain a reasonable balance in society, including when it comes to household income. For many years, Aleksandr Lukashenko's main requirement was a fair attitude towards people.

In this regard, the head of state mentioned his recent meeting with the military where he discussed in detail the country's security and the role of the military in this. The military must stand ready to fulfill their military duty anytime. However, if you look at their living standards, you will see that they are not as well-off as, for example, people working in trade.

“And what do the military have? Do they get an apartment in time? Do they earn an insane amount of money? Do their children have a lavish lifestyle?” Aleksandr Lukashenko asked rhetorically. “Now look at sellers. They take the money they make here out of the country. They have palaces, mansions abroad. Are these traders, intermediaries and others a special class now?” the president asked.

The president is convinced that in such a manageable compact country as Belarus, the power vertical is absolutely capable of restoring order and ensuring a fair treatment of people by the state and supporting and helping those who need it.
