Second mobile shop, exchange office to be brought to Belarus-Poland border

MINSK, 18 November (BelTA) - The second mobile shop and currency exchange office will open near the transport and logistics center on the Belarusian-Polish border where refugees have been temporarily accommodated, President's Aide – Inspector for Grodno Oblast Yuri Karayev said in an interview with Belarus 1 TV Channel, BelTA has learned.

“Now I am organizing a second mobile shop. Among the most popular products are cigarettes, cookies, sweets, and buns,” said Yuri Karayev.

According to him, migrants need more tape which they use to restore an improvised second tier in the hub (similar to that in a train compartment). Yuri Karayev drew attention to how quickly people who found themselves in a difficult situation self-organized and how understanding they are to Belarus' efforts to restore order.

“In general, they are very disciplined. You show them where to go, and they do it. They are patient and understand that we do it for order. There is no anger or panic,” he said.

Yuri Karayev also said that the first groups of those willing to exchange currency were able to do so in the exchange office which has been brought to the site earlier. “So far, they have had enough Belarusian money, but they also exchange $200 at one go,” the inspector for Grodno Oblast said. He added that another mobile exchange office would soon be brought from Brest Oblast.
