Showcase site not to leave questions
Alexander Lukashenko demands that construction of Belarusian sites in Sochi and Krasnaya Polyana accelerate, bringing everything here to absolute order as patterned
During his working trip to the Russian Federation, the President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, toured the ongoing construction of Belarus spa in Sochi and its recreation centre in Krasnaya Polyana. The Head of the Presidential Property Management Directorate, Victor Sheiman, has told the Head of State that profits will maximised at the facilities.
“There is one issue: we must finish what we’ve started, completing these construction projects. We should do whatever is needed to launch the sanatorium in Sochi,” the President noted. “As far as Krasnaya Polyana is concerned, we have no time to waste. The task was set a long time ago; you were supposed to know what should be done to make the facility profitable. Naturally, the biggest money is to be made during the Olympic Games, which are being held there in a year’s time,” stressed the Head of State.
Mr. Lukashenko stated that Belarusian facilities are already earning good money and that the new hotel should be no exception, being located in a perfect place, enjoying popularity. He underlined, “Half of the land the Russians gave us for construction remains vacant so we need to decide how we’ll use it. It’s the best site in Krasnaya Polyana so we should set an example, offering facilities rivalling those in Belarus. Everything should be perfect, even if we need to lay access roads from the main highway.”
