Lukashenko satisfied with current accommodation for refugees at Belarusian-Polish border

MINSK, 22 November (BelTA) – It is necessary to pay close attention to the need to properly organize the everyday life of refugees at the border and the delivery of humanitarian aid. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the statement as he received a report from Grodno Oblast Governor Vladimir Karanik and President's Aide – Inspector for Grodno Oblast Yuri Karayev, BelTA has learned.

Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “You've been pulled into this problem. I'd like to say you are doing a good job organizing, so to say, the everyday life of these poor refugees, who are concentrated in this logistics center. As far as I can understand, humanitarian aid is properly delivered. You collect it, distribute it over there, everything is under control.”

The head of state also expressed gratitude to the owners of the logistics center, who let the refugees use the facility. The president pointed out that if a private owner helps with this matter, then the state should support it somehow since the private owner's business is losing revenue due to the shutdown of the logistics center.

Aleksandr Lukashenko remarked that the refugees now have access to shop vans and warned against “some private businesses toying with the prices”. At the same time he is convinced that there will not be such problems.

“Clothe, feed, warm, and provide medical support. The southern people spent 10-13 days in our forest. Certainly, it was difficult. It is necessary to make sure that children, women, pregnant women, and so on do not get sick,” the president added.
