MINSK, 6 July (BelTA) – Russian political expert Semyon Uralov told the On Point online project on BelTA's YouTube channel why the Belarusian model of agricultural towns is attractive to Russia.

“At the Forum of Regions I realized one important thing - we are increasingly moving top-down. This is very good and right. I would also like to see cooperation at the district level. Now we have it at the level of regions, but we need to go even lower - to the level of districts. The Belarusian model can be of interest to Russia when it comes to the development of agro-towns and in general the intensive development of rural areas,” Semyon Uralov said.

The political scientist emphasized that the great thing about agro-towns is socialization and workforce retainment. “In other words, a university or college graduate can immediately get an apartment. A kindergarten, a school are built, and this graduate can plan his/her life for 15 years ahead. This is the most important thing. A person needs confidence in the future. And in Russia there is a huge number of regions with decadent rural communities,” he said.
