Even the tires turned out to be Chinese.
Lukashenka was indignant at the lack of domestic components in the Belarusian industry. The dictator raised the problem on the example of a motorcycle produced by Motovelo.
During the inspection of the two-wheeled vehicle, Lukashenka asked the management of the enterprise: how many Belarusian-made components are in it?
It turned out that the motorcycle only had domestic design project, lineup and assembly of components ...
“What's Belarusian-made here?” Lukashenka asked. “Who made the headlight? Shields, engine…?”
Even the tires — everything turned out to be Chinese-made.
“There is no localization here. Tomorrow they’ll introduce sanctions — and the production is closed,” the dictator was indignant. “These assemblies, in the entire country, are a real pain in the neck... We must do our own thing. We've had enough of this import.”
