MINSK, 21 November (BelTA) - Construction of a fence in Belovezhskaya Pushcha is a politicized project, Belarusian Minister of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Andrei Khudyk said in an interview to the ONT TV channel, BelTA has learned.
“This is a politicized project, utter nonsense. It can be called a monument to human arrogance. Unfortunately, we have not yet managed to stop the construction of this five-meter concrete fence, stretching for more than 180 kilometers,” said Andrei Khudyk.
According to him, the official Polish environmentalists obey their authorities and do not engage in dialogue and correspondence with the Belarusian side. “Some scientists, public figures understand and support us. We hope that they will hear us,” the minister said.
