MINSK, 18 October (BelTA) – I feel upset when I have to make tough administrative decisions, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said during the meeting at the Academy of Public Administration under the President of Belarus on 18 October, BelTA informs.
“I am a systematic person. I want everything to be in good order and so on,” the head of state noted. “Sometimes you have to punish or fire someone, then you start thinking about it again and again. It is so difficult. It definitely leaves a mark. It leaves a scar on you heart. I am a sensitive person.”
According to Aleksandr Lukashenko, he had humble beginnings and saw different sides of life. “I was raised in a family where my mother worked from dawn till dusk, and I had to solve many things by myself. I saw justice and injustice in life. And I grew up this way, I am very sensitive to it. I feel upset when I have to make tough administrative decisions,” the Belarusian leader said.
“It happens sometimes that you take measures for a reason and then start thinking that we just can't waste people. So, you instruct those people to go somewhere and make a difference. And they understand it,” the president said.
He cited the current administration of Mogilev Oblast as an example – a governor and an aide to the president who previously worked in the government and were in charge of the agricultural industry. “I fired the minister, the vice premier. And then I thought that they are actually good specialists. And I have recently told people from other regions to go to Mogilev Oblast and see how it has to be done. If other regions follow in their footsteps, I will have less work to do,” Aleksandr Lukashenko concluded.More about President
