Lukashenko explains pricing regulation intricacies

TOLOCHIN DISTRICT, 11 November (BelTA) – Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko talked to reporters while on a working trip to Tolochin District, Vitebsk Oblast. Among other things he explained what regulations Belarusian commercial entities should follow as they set their prices, BelTA has learned.

Aleksandr Lukashenko was told that there are several documents regulating pricing practices – a presidential directive and government resolutions. This is why the head of state was asked which of them commercial entities should follow.

The president started his answer with a bit of humor: “I am afraid of meeting with oblast governors due to these prices. I look at them and think: they are smiling, it means it is still tolerable, we will endure.”

“You have to abide by the documents. A presidential directive is sacred. Nobody can rescind a presidential order. I know what you mean. It does not contradict the resolution. The directive was supposed to immediately freeze prices until a government resolution is passed. The government resolution has been passed, the directive has been fulfilled. The government resolution, which introduced a pricing system, is now in effect. That's it,” the Belarusian leader explained. “That's all there is to it. There is no need for the directive, it has been executed.”
