Lukashenko suggests building more housing for large families in small towns

VETKA DISTRICT (BelTA) – Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko suggested building more housing for large families in small towns and agro-towns as he visited the manufacturing workshop Novoselki of the poultry farm at the Belorusneft-Osobino company on 25 July, BelTA has learned.

Acting Gomel Oblast Governor, First Vice Governor Gennady Solovei briefed the president that 2,000 large families will be provided with new homes in 2019. The total number of large families in Gomel Oblast is about 5,700-5,800. “We will continue working on this matter as we need to provide such families with new homes. We are also mulling over housing construction projects in rural areas,” he said.

According to Aleksandr Lukashenko, small towns provide a better living environment for large families. “This benefits the state and children," he said.

The president explained that this housing policy will contribute to the distribution of workforce across the country. “Large families have three to five children. Some even more,” he added.
