During a meeting in the Shklovsky district of the Mogilev region the Belarusian leader Aleksandr Lukashenko assumed that in the event that there is a failure in the economic sector, the country can lose its independence.
The video of Lukashenko’s trip was published by the “ONT” TV channel on the YouTube video hosting service.
During the meeting the President of the republic said to the heads and staff of agricultural enterprises that only death can be the reason for the non-performance of assigned tasks.
He reminded that the local authorities must clearly fulfil the assigned tasks, otherwise Belarus shouldn’t expect a better future.
“We are on the frontline. If we won’t survive these upcoming years and will fail, so it means that we will have to either enter the structure of some other State or feet will just be wiped all over us. And, heaven forbid, they will also launch a war here like the one in Ukraine,” added Lukashenko.
In May he banned the creation of unprofitable projects in the republic and said that Belarus can become the flourishing region if citizens cease to “whine”.
