Lukashenko adamant about correctness of Belarus' coronavirus response strategy

KIROVSK DISTRICT (BelTA) – Belarus' strategy to respond to the pandemic, in particular the decision not to stop manufacturing facilities and the economy, has actually allowed to save the country, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said when talking with the participants of the commemorative event in the village of Borki, Kirovsk District on 20 June, BelTA has learned.

The head of state stressed that this is not bravado. “I understood many months ago what they wanted from us. The truth is that we would not have had a country by now. They would have imposed a dollar or a Russian ruble…,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

“But are working today, we are breathing. They wanted us not to breathe. I know what they wanted. It did not work out. Time will pass and you will understand that this is true,” the Belarusian leader added.
