MINSK, 10 October (BelTA) – There are no prerequisites for product shortages in Belarus, Minister of Antimonopoly Regulation and Trade Aleksei Bogdanov told the ONT TV channel, BelTA informs.

“The Ministry of Antimonopoly Regulation and Trade (MART) is working on it, checking retail prices and benchmarking them against 5 October. We come across some violations and we will deal with them. One of the tasks set by the head of state is to retain a broad choice of products and prevent market players from leaving the retail sector. This task is being addressed by the MART, the State Control Committee, the prosecutor's office, the police. Violations will not go unpunished. There is no emergency. All enterprises worked at a profit, suppliers and trade were all good. By now prices have been frozen and we need to figure out why there was a rise in prices, and also how to prevent it in the future. There are no prerequisites for any goods to disappear from store shelves,” Aleksei Bogdanov said.

He went on saying: “Some are panicking, but I am sure that time will pass and everyone will return to their normal mode of operation according to the rules that were developed based on the instructions of the head of state. The decision taken concerns not only goods, but also services. E-commerce is also under control.”
