MINSK, 20 September (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko has approved the appointment of heads of local executive and administrative bodies on 20 September, BelTA has learned.
Kamenets District Executive Committee will be headed by Vitaly Kulak, who previously led Zhabinka District Executive Committee. Brest First Vice Mayor Vadim Kravchuk will head Zhabinka District Executive Committee now.
Aleksandra Mikheyenko will replace the post of the chairperson of the Cherikov District Executive Committee with a similar one in Kostyukovichi District.
The administration of the Pervomaisky District of Vitebsk will be headed by Evgeny Semenychev, who is currently director of the Vitebsk Production Directorate branch of Vitebskoblgaz.
The president pointed out that agriculture would always be a priority task for local government executives. There are a lot of issues regarding this area right now, during the completion of the harvesting campaign, especially taking into account the current weather conditions, which have been complicated by rains. “We should not miss anything. You can see that autumn has brought a lot of problems, especially the rains (last week and this week will be rainy),” the head of state outlined the range of issues for the new heads.
The Belarusian leader is convinced that it is necessary to approach the end of the harvest season and to decide on the ways of processing and storing the harvest in a proper manner and on the basis of the peculiarities of the region. “We have to use corn to get the grain we need. If there is an opportunity and you see that corn silage is necessary, then we should make silage. We just have to figure out what each farm needs. The only thing we need is order and discipline. Nothing should be lost. Everything that has been grown needs to be harvested,” said Aleksandr Lukashenko.
"As for state procurement, there are no problems with any of the crops here. State procurement has been practically fulfilled. The state and people will be provided with grain in full,” the president stressed.
