Lukashenko expects new Mogilev Oblast governor to do well

MOGILEV, 14 December (BelTA) – The new Mogilev Oblast governor Anatoly Isachenko will be as good as the previous one. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the relevant statement as he presented the new Mogilev Oblast governor on 14 December, BelTA has learned.

Speaking about the head of the oblast administration, the president noted he had been watching his career for a long time and has a good opinion of him. “I am absolutely convinced and I say it in the presence of Leonid Konstantinovich [Zayats, the previous Mogilev Oblast governor] that he will be at least as good. I made sure of that using Minsk Oblast as an example,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said. He recalled when he appointed Anatoly Isachenko Minsk Oblast governor back in the day when Minsk Oblast had its fair share of problems. “He did well, a solid man, he pulled through,” the head of state stated. “But the office got too tight.”

The Belarusian leader said: “I very reverently treat my oblast, Mogilev Oblast, the oblast I grew up in. My entire conscious life went here. I know every meter in Mogilev, I studied here.” The matter of the choice of the head of the region administration was approached very carefully taking into account the head of state's special attitude to Mogilev Oblast, too. “We evaluated a great deal of candidates. And knowing that we cannot keep Anatoly in his office although there was plenty of work there, I said: let's try it, he will not be worse, his style is the same as Leonid Konstantinovich's,” the president said. “But most importantly, the last reason in his favor is that he is yours [he worked in Mogilev Oblast for a long time].”

“He worked here, he became a professional here, he does not need to catch up on things. And certainly he has colossal experience,” Aleksandr Lukashenko summed it up.
