As Charter97.org earlier reported the Minsk traffic police was going to purchase 28 German motorcycles for a new unit. The agreement was concluded on 29 May 2017, OOO Belatra will be the supplier. The total purchase amount is 960.988 rubles. As of the rate on May 29 it is $516.715.
The lieutenant colonel of the police in reserve, opposition politician Mikalai Kazlou stated to Charter97.org when commenting on the purchase of expensive motorcycles:
- In my opinion, this can be characterized only by one phrase: "Fiddle while Rome is burning". Given the economic situation in Belarus, this increase in unemployment, this poverty, it is not wise to spend such money on motorcycles.
