MINSK, 10 June (BelTA) – There are no oligarchs in the Belarusian government, but people who climbed from the very bottom of the career ladder to the top, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the national seminar-conference to discuss new methods and forms of public communication at the grassroots level, BelTA has learned.
"The bureaucratic apparatus are not ‘demigods' in our country. This is something we can be proud of. In layperson terms, at the helm of the country are not oligarchs or hereditary rulers, but ordinary people who have worked their way up from the ground level," Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
The president noted that all of them receive education, move up the career ladder, create families, and raise children just like everyone else. "They comply with the main requirement: a wealth practical experience and knowledge of life. As they say, with first-hand experience,” the president emphasized. “Therefore, government officials understand the issues that people raise with them. People need to be heard and problems solved."
