Lukashenko in favor of giving Borovlyany status of town

MINSK, 20 October (BelTA) – We need to change the administrative status of Borovlyany, a settlement in Minsk District, and designate it as a separate town, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he talked to employees of Minsk Oblast Hospital on 20 October, BelTA has learned.

"We need to take a decision on Borovlyany this year or early next year. There is a need to change its status from a settlement in Minsk District into an urban community with all the ensuing consequences. This issue is of paramount importance. We have already discussed it," the head of state said.

He noted that in terms of population Borovlyany is already comparable to large districts in the country. "There are not many such districts. Borovlyany is now more comparable to a large town. Therefore, it is necessary to give it the appropriate status. As soon as you sort things out, I will make the appropriate decision. This town of yours is a nice place. You have done a good job. But there are still some things to work on," the Belarusian leader summed up.
