Lukashenko invites presidential press pool to chop firewood on cleanup day

MINSK, 20 April (BelTA) - Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko traveled to his hometown for the national cleanup day where he helped plant an apple orchard. The head of state asked all participants of the event, including the journalists, to join the work, BelTA has learned. 

This is the president's principle: the press pool who work covering the president’s activities every day change microphones and cameras for rakes and shovels during a cleanup day. Then the head of state decided that the journalists had not done enough work and invited everyone to chop wood. 

As BelTA previously reported, 225 trees of five varieties were planted during this year’s cleanup day with the participation of the head of state. All in all, the orchard consists of 411 apple trees. Local schoolchildren will take care of the orchard and literally enjoy the fruits of their labor in late summer and autumn.
