MINSK, 5 March (BelTA) – I strongly support the promotion of cycling in the country, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he talked with the staff of OAO Motovelo Plant, BelTA has learned.
“Were it in my power, I would make the streets of Minsk car-free and bicycle friendly. This would be so great. But it is impossible,” Aleksandr Lukashenko noted.
