Lukashenka threatens Miasnikovich with prison
13:20, — Politics
The dictator appointed government officials guilty for the surplus stock in storehouses.
At a meeting on the current issues of socio-economic development today Lukashenka accused them of lying and threatened with criminal responsibility, the dictator’s press-service reports.
“I would ask you, Mikhail Uladzimiravich, and even more so – the ministers and heads of enterprises, to keep it in mind. All these lies about unloading the storehouses, how it looks today – it has been taken to Lithuania, Russia, somewhere else, money has not been, but the tractors and cars were just stocked there with dealers… I will tell publicly, this will end up in a prison cell for someone, -he claimed, addressing the head of the government Mikhail Miasnikovich. – Whom are you eyewashing? I have enough people, who would analyze and report the next day”.
Lukashenka asserted claims not only to the head of the government, but also his deputies.
“I will send you the respective document today, you will read and see, what the members of the government and the heads of enterprises do. If you take upon selling – sell. You have made up the schedule yourself. The verbatim was made, we will look up there for your and the ministers’ commitments, we will let you listen, and then ask, - he claimed, addressing the first vice-Prime Minister Uladzimir Siamashka. – The main thing – is to bring money to the country, not to take goods abroad like you threw it away and left somewhere by the fence. Take it wherever you want, but money must arrive to the country. I advise you to pay attention to the performance of our enterprises”.
It is not the first time Lukashenka shifted the blame for failures in the economy to officials, at the same time not without mentioning that it was him who had appointed them in the first place. In early September he threated the government and the directors of large enterprises with dismissal for not fulfilling the task of unloading the storehouses and industrial output growth by 1 January 2014.
