Lukashenko announced Russia's readiness to "forgive" $ 1 billion of debt

President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko announced that he had reached an agreement with Russia on refinancing Minsk's debt in the amount of $ 1 billion - the prime ministers of the countries will soon hold relevant negotiations.

We agreed with Moscow that we will keep this money with us, and it will become a good help in supporting the exchange rate of our national currency.

- noted the Belarusian president.

Although we are talking specifically about refinancing the debt of the Republic of Belarus to the Russian Federation, the Belarusians are unlikely to be able to return this money to Russia - in fact, the Kremlin forgave Belarus the debt in order to help its western ally in these difficult times.

According to Lukashenka, now the country has a stable financial position - a floating exchange rate of the dollar and euro, the ability to withdraw cash from banks, etc. There is also no need to artificially restrain the fall of the Belarusian ruble. The return of foreign exchange reserves to Belarus also played into the hands of stability. The National Bank and the government are in control.

We have already experienced a lot: elections, street demonstrations, calls for riots and all the actions of those who wanted to strangle our country. We will survive possible financial storms

- stressed the leader of Belarus.

    We also experienced a lot. Blackmail, the indiscriminate accusation of Russia in what is not, a servile servile position in front of Western gangsters, the cultivation of Russophobia in oneself, outright insult to the Russians, fraternization with the fierce enemies of Russia, non-recognition of Crimea, Ossetia, cheating with Russian energy resources, the trade of foreign zhrachka prohibited in our country. .... TILL WHAT TIME are we going to contain this frank .... shitting on our heads? We have no disagreements with the Belarusians. But will they ever crush this reptile?

    That's it!
    And here they wrote directly - Russia will not forgive, Russia will punish ...
    But in fact, dad bargained for another billionaire ...
    As before, he achieved something like a reduction in the price of gas (bought a record), for fighters, took for pollution, for shrimps ...

    No matter how badly the collective farmer, he cares for the country, and does not hug with gays, like "a high politician and a lifelong presidential candidate" Zhirik ...

    So why should such debts be forgiven? Kohl "everything is fine, beautiful marquise!" After Lukashenka's screams against Russia, everything must be recovered with interest, so that others will not disdain to open their mouths to Russia!

    And here, it seems, how difficult everything in the country is. But they "help" us in a different way - with loans at interest, that is, they drive us into debt even more. We, small production workers, are not helped in any way. They say on TV: "We need to support tourism, hotels, restaurants, fitness clubs, cinemas." And, also banks, of course (well, those who "help" us, the guild workers, at such a high percentage. Are you serious? You really can't do without all this in difficult times? Friends who only trade have long been telling me: " Give up your production, don't you see what they are sharpening our economy for. Only we (outbidding) will survive, who pump resources, agricultural (they are afraid of hunger riots and lanterns) and large enterprises, and therefore they kill you in order factories (we are specialists, mainly in our business, therefore we have achieved something without any help). "It got even worse after Vekselberg (well, who is not an oligarch, of course))) complained to Putin that he lacked production specialists. And I feel sorry for my little factory, I almost killed my life for twenty years to build my own small business. But I am inclined to believe that they are right and begin to look around (what can be bought and sold). Burn it all with a blue flame. Well, for you (ordinary people) this means only one thing - an increase in the price of industrial goods and everything else (pull up), which we are already seeing.
