MIORY, 8 August (BelTA) – During the visit to Miory Rolling Mill on 8 August Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko promised the Hero of Belarus title to those who will be able to turn the company around, BelTA has learned.

“The most important outcome of my visit today is that we have already agreed on awarding two Hero of Belarus titles to those who will fulfill these tasks. This company should be the birthplace of new heroes for Belarus,” Aleksandr Lukashenko emphasized.

The head of state did not specify who will be able to get the country's highest award for revitalizing and reshaping the company. However, the company will be run by Deputy Director General for Production Vladimir Dyakonov.

“I am not naming names yet. When they deliver on their promise, I will fulfill my promise,” the president said.

The employees of the enterprise recalled that there used to be a tradition in Belarus to name institutions and enterprises after famous compatriots. They proposed to resume this tradition.

“I absolutely support you. Once you have at least two heroes (I think, more), you can name this mill after them. I will support you, I will sign the decree,” Aleksandr Lukashenko assured.

“The only thing I oppose is erecting monuments. Some suggest mounting a monument to Lukashenko, Petrov, Sidorov... Listen, we are doing our job, what monuments are you talking about? After our pilots died steering the plane away from Baranovichi, we erected a monument at that place a year later. And they deserve it. If someone deserves a monument, let it be. But this should not turn into a trend,” the president added.
