Lukashenko to corrupt civil servants: I am not going to protect you

MOGILEV, 14 December (BelTA) – Close attention should be paid to the fight against corruption. Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko made the relevant statement as he presented the new Mogilev Oblast governor on 14 December, BelTA has learned.

Aleksandr Lukashenko said: “As people say, some have their face in the trough. I ask you not to go this way. I will not be able to protect you because it is one of the key requirements of my policy.”

The president noted that the opposition often comes up with fake news claiming he has billions in his stash. “It is easy for me to respond to that: if you say that I or my kids have billions stashed somewhere, it means you know the money exists. And I tell you directly: take it. If you need a chit from me or my kids, you will get it right away. I am saying it publicly. They've been talking about it for about ten years but nobody has taken anything anywhere. Trust me, I don't take what doesn't belong to me. It is the key thing,” Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed. “You have to live honestly if you can.”

“This is why don't come to me with corruption. If you are caught, don't come to me,” Aleksandr Lukashenko added.
