Lukashenka On Corruption Among Officials: Everyone’s Interconnected


The dictator told the Prime Minister about the corruption schemes in intermediation.

Lukashenka demands to pay more efforts to step up import substitution and cut out middlemen. The ruler said this as he met with Prime Minister Siarhei Rumas on October 16, BelTA reports.

Speaking about middlemen, Aliaksandr Lukashenka noted that it is often a breeding ground for corruption. “Why are people, first of all officials, detained and then jailed? All of them are tied together by intermediary schemes. What is striking is that middlemen deal even in Belarusian products. Products are made in Minsk and then sold via middlemen to Minsk-based enterprises,” Lukashenka noted.
