The head of state noted that the situation in the world is not easy and one can regret this, but on the other hand, this is a time of opportunity and it has prompted us to produce more Belarusian. “The situation in the world is not easy. I don't want to scare anyone. Of course, the number one task for us now is to promote import substitution,” the head of state said. According to him, there are some problems in this area, but this prompted the Belarusians to reduce imports. “We are having a hard time as we were affected by the pressure that was put on Russia,” the president added.
