MINSK, 3 June (BelTA) – We will keep state support for large families under any circumstances, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko told the media on 3 June, BelTA has learned.
“If anything to happen, we should not start with children. We have something else to cut on (in the budget's spending apart from state support of families and children),” the president said.
Aleksandr Lukashenko said that taking into account the demographical situation in Belarus state support for large families should be kept in place. “We have supported and will continue to support large families. This is out of question,” the head of state said.
In his words, it is necessary to focus state support on families with three and more children. This support should include allowance payments, better housing, education and healthcare services,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
