Lukashenka Compares Cow Farms Near Shklou With Auschwitz


The dictator came up with an abusive comparison.

On March 26, Lukashenka visited the dairy trading complex “Slizhy” of the Amkodor-Shklou JSC, which remains a part of the “Kupalauskaye” agro-holding, Lukashenka’s press-center reports.

Having visited several cow sheds, Aliaksandr Lukashenka was unpleasantly surprised with the conditions the animals are held in, as well as with the lack of order in the production premises. “If a person doesn’t understand this is Auschwitz, and you appoint him as a CEO of the holding (“Kupalauskaye” agro-holding – edit.), then I don’t understand you at all,” he was outraged.

“For how long has the complex been working? Two years? Looks like ten,” Aliaksandr Lukashenka said. “No one ever does proper cleaning here.”

Auschwitz (or Oswiecim, from the name of the Polish city) is the name for the complex of German death camps Auschwitz-Birkenau, where over a million people were killed and tortured during World War II. Most of them — for being Jewish by origin.

This is not the first time Lukashenka makes different comparisons and statements that can be regarded as demeaning the memory and insulting representatives of other nationalities.
