The “cheap” residence of Lukashenka appears to cost a fortune.
As much as $100,000 will be spent on CCTV cameras for the Palace of Independence.
As charter97.org has learnt, the Minsk city executive committee is looking for a supplier of surveillance equipment for the dictator's new residence, which is called in the documents as an “administrative building within Arlouskaya Street – Winners Avenue – the Svislach River”. The order costs 1 billion rubles, which is almost 100,000 dollars. The purchase will be funded from the local budget.
The Minsk city executive committee earlier opened bids for purchasing golden dishware for the palace.
