MINSK, 9 August (BelTA) – The situation in the country during the presidential election will not spiral out of control, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said when answering questions after the voting on 9 August, BelTA informs.
“Nothing will spiral out control. I guarantee that. This is the main objective for the ruling government, not only the president. You should not have any doubts about it, no matter what certain people are planning here and other things,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
According to the president, in the morning he heard out a report of the State Border Committee. In the recent time Belarus has refused entry to 170 people. “They either showed counterfeited visas or could not even explain why they are going here. Therefore, control on the border is very serious. We have also strengthened surveillance over the Belarusian-Russian part of the border due to recent events. By the way, we refused entry to some people there too,” the head of state remarked.
