MINSK, 20 November (BelTA) – Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko constantly closely follows the situation with refugees at the border. Press Secretary of the Belarus President Natalya Eismont made the statement in a recent broadcast hosted by the YouTube channel of Igor Tur, a political analyst of the Belarusian TV channel ONT, BelTA has learned.

The host wondered how the refugee crisis and the situation around it had affected the presidential schedule and whether one can say that attention is paid to the situation every hour 24/7.

The press secretary said: “As for the situation at the border, the president gets reports all the time, he keeps all of it under control. The chairman of the State Border Committee, law enforcement and security agencies, the defense minister, the oblast governor, who is constantly in communication with the president. You've said it right – 24/7. But it is 24/7 as usual.”
