Lukashenko: it’s necessary to feed our people and get good money from food sales

Co-ordinating the appointment of heads of local authorities today, the President of Belarus drew their attention to two important aspects: the harvesting campaign and the creation of stabilisation funds


Speaking in this regard about the situation in the world, Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed, “The situation is difficult, but not critical. The most important thing is that everything is in our hands. I want to remind you that hunger is approaching, as everyone is screaming. Probably, it won’t be easy in the world. Agriculture is in your area of responsibility, therefore, do your best to organise the harvesting campaign this year, get good crops and make good stocks.”

According to the President, we are constantly talking at the level of districts, small and medium-sized cities about the need to feed animals and livestock, “This is right, but do not forget that we need to feed people. Therefore, the stabilisation funds that you will create in the districts, and if someone, God forbid, did not do this, think about where you will store everything you need to provide for the residents of your district: potatoes, apples, carrots, beets, etc. Thus, the harvesting campaign and stabilisation funds are very important issues.”

The Belarusian Head of State noted that he would soon meet with some heads of districts during the harvesting and fodder preparation. Aleksandr Lukashenko guided the newly-appointed heads of districts, “It rained all over the country after the heat wave. Everything is in our hands, let’s act. See how you can save the crops. We must do everything necessary to preserve the harvest. Alongside cereals, there are enough other crops that we must harvest: sugar beet, flax, potatoes, corn. Everything contributes to a good harvest for all crops. We need to feed our people and make good money from food sales.”
