MINSK, 1 March (BelTA) – The matter of providing additional support to pensioners in Belarus will be discussed again later, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said as he met with community leaders, experts, Belarusian and foreign media on 1 March, BelTA has learned.
The head of state noted that pensioners in Belarus, Russia and Ukraine have similar problems that have to do with the amount of pension benefits. “Of course, pension benefits are small. We will think about it. This matter is on the agenda,” Alexander Lukashenko said.
The president added that another topical issue is providing support to families with many children. He pointed to the decline in the birth rate and increasing depopulation in Belarus. “Therefore, we are busy resolving this issue. We will certainly approach the matter of pension benefits later,” the head of state said.
