Lukashenka: Russian rascals create problems
16:55, — Politics
The Belarusian dictator made a statement on the conflict with Russia.
The ruler said the country faced problems with potash fertilisers sales and the actions of shareholders of the Belarusian Potash Company from Uralkali worsened the situation in the global potash market.
“I've already made a public statement. I'd like to specify. We have faced certain problems with selling potash fertilisers due to dishonest actions by these Russian rascals,” Lukashenka said Tuesday at a meeting to discuss personnel issues and appoint new heads of diplomatic missions abroad, Interfax news agency reports.
The dictator said the situation in the market was “not easy”. “It was difficult before the collapse, because the world economy is in crisis. The actions by shareholders from Uralkali made the situation in the global potash market even more complicated,” Lukashenka said.
According to him, “the matter is not only that it [OAO Belaruskali] is our main company”. “The matter is that it is the collective, the core company of the city, the face of our country. We put many efforts and resources to revive the enterprise after the 80s and the 90s. The beautiful city was built. We don't have other miners in the country,” the ruler said.
“At any rate, it is a great asset of our state. We mustn't lose it, and by no means will we lose or surrender it. But we must resume the company's activity as it was in its best days,” Lukashenka said. He reminded that “the country earned more than $3bn revenues from selling potash fertilisers in its best days.”
