Lukashenko explains why Belarusian officials are forbidden to complain about sanctions

GRODNO, 2 April (BelTA) – During a working trip to Grodno Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko explained why he had forbidden the central government and individual officials to complain about Western sanctions back in the day, BelTA has learned.

Aleksandr Lukashenko explained: “I proceeded from simple logic (I can say it today): if an executive, a civil servant, the director of an enterprise is given an opportunity to dodge hard work, he or she will grab the opportunity. This is why I told them right away that there are no sanctions. I told them to forget that sanctions exist.”

“What difference does it make for our people whether the sanctions exist or not? They want to live. They want to work. And time has chosen us for executive positions. And we should do everything for our people to be able to live, work, and support their families,” the head of state added.
