Lukashenko has met with journalists in the regions when it arrives. It is necessary to introduce the practice of communicating with journalists. Central journalists, they say, he is seen as the regionals do not have this capability. Who wants to, let him go — we will not be limited.
Brest, "Dawn on the Bug River." How are the Belarusian-Ukrainian relations? Can Ukraine to join the Customs Union?
Lukashenko said that Ukraine is not homogeneous. There is a struggle — when President Obama was in Poland, there were invited Yanukovych. Ukraine is seeking a zone of free trade and the WTO. It is unlikely that Ukraine will meet in the Customs Union. But anything can happen. God forbid, there came to Ukraine.
With Ukraine, we have a very good relationship. This is the closest country to us. We live like brothers. In Crimea there are no problems, there is our resort.

Lukashenko said that in principle there is no work office.
"Economic Newspaper" asks about the thesis directive number 4 on the elimination of competition and monopoly.
Lukashenko is surprised that there is such a newspaper. Then he says that the competition committee will not solve all problems, as occurred in Russia. But with such a panic as we have now, the competition committee will not solve anything. Lukashenko asks if, once the anti-monopoly committee secretary of commerce. He says that in the plans — in

About political prisoners
In Poland, a special situation. It claims to be the center of Europe. And Obama's visit, it is a springboard. We were criticized. They have their own position, and the other even than in the EU and Germany. Nevertheless, in recent times, we have a lot of neat impulses to normalize our relations. Not normal if such a relationship. We did not and do not collect prytsyasnyali oppressed Poles. As for leadership, it is not our fault, this situation has developed. But do not put unprofitable humiliating conditions. Hey, you release political prisoners.
I say, we have no political prisoners. All processes were visible. Here you are with Kyle stormed the Government House and that's responsibility. We have only 2 or 3 people Sannikov, Statkevich Us and convicted. What are 180 political prisoners, as I said one German. They will free.

When the situation is ripe, we are not bloodthirsty. We do a load of the prison did not keep. They do not want us there in the prison. That they zvyagali and had problems in prison. But they are no longer needed. One of them came to the silent ones in the square. Let him say why he hid under a blanket in the hospital? Where have you been?

"The devaluation of the heavy thing. But it is good for the export-oriented economy. Why do I say that we have no crisis? The crisis — this is when businesses are closing and people are thrown into the vulitsu.U we do not have. "
"We pay for gas, then medications and third return loans. Something we sell and we will return these loans. We did it successfully, and we will do. For nothing I will not give up the enterprise.

About gas and oil
I can only say how omitted. The time will come, I say. What a merry life, I went to Venezuela. Via Odessa-Brody swing. We pushed Russia out of the pipe.
Who is to blame?
"The chairman of the National Bank, the Prime Minister, as one senior citizen," National Bank resign. " And he adstavlyavsya, he was nice? Where to dismiss them. Tell me the names of those who tomorrow will be the chairman of the National Bank and the Prime Minister. Consider that this is a rhetorical question. "
"All right, all my fault. Blame me. I can live with that, I'm not used to it. Metro blew, Lukashenko is to blame. So there was this panic. "
"We can scrape together $ 5 billion. Could I risk the money? This is a strategic reserve in case of war. I ordered the National Bank to a currency not throw. "
Comment the first chairman of the National Bank of Belarus Stanislav Bogdankevich:
"Not everything was. There were special boxes made in the days of the Soviet Union. After the government Kebich, before any of the presidency, gave us a special vault in Machulishchy at the former military base. We have it reconstructed.
But Lukashenko, in fact, never once was in the store. Chatterbox, what it take.
Foreign exchange reserves at the beginning of the sovereignty of Belarus and really was not. Our country, like other independent republics of the former Soviet Union, the Central Bank of the USSR gave nothing.
But we are gradually introduced as the national currency, began to accumulate foreign exchange reserves. Was the development of the country and raise money. That's how it was in reality. "
About the crisis and currency
"When we start a frantic pace to raise salaries, just nudge inflation. During the month, in the absence of agitation and violence will come to that height where they should be. There is no ground for the hype. "
"I put on the table a few letters honored retirees that they are not washed down with pork neck. As if there are no other pig organs. "
"Only a fool would go the way that was Russia and other countries".
"In exchangers until exchange. Until July 1, the state in this game will not play. "
"Why do I say that we have no crisis? Crisis — this is when businesses are closing and people are thrown into the street. We do not have."
Economist Sergei Chaly with this approach does not agree:
"This is, of course, a play on words. Like a joke:" Our patient Neither dead. Just the temperature dropped to a home. "Can a very long time to invent different and say," There is no crisis, as the crisis I call something else. "
And here the question is not what the president calls the crisis. It is important that what is called the crisis in economic theory. "
Roan says that in Belarus there are many signs of a full-scale crisis
"This, of course, a full-blown crisis. Because companies can, and do not close, and involuntary unemployment is already there. Threat of bankruptcies of private importers — clear. Here what parameter or Zaden …
Moreover, I would say that we have the last decade, the last 11 years — is, in the world's standards, one can, from the most severe crises. And it has only just begun. "

"No one can say when it will happen. Who do you say that prices will rise tomorrow. Bestalkovasts government. This week said that fuel prices will rise. Half a ton in the garage every gasoline. Not everyone is pleased decrease in gasoline prices.
They say, let's make 10,000 per dollar. This is said by those who have currency. But this is another surge in prices that people do not break down and start chaos. We pushed me to it. "
"Even the 5000 ruble is overvalued for our country. Demand for the currency remains speculative. Necessary
"Out of the crisis, we have to go with the smaller imports."
"What decision can I take if there is no analysis. Where we spent the money? We have received about 20 billion currency. It is only then that account. And the fact that the population vvyazlo-exported? To begin to address the currency issue, we have to find out. For the six months we will see a picture and then you can click on any pedal. "
"Excuse me will slaughter. Need to calm down and calmly go through these times. Many of your colleagues have already papisvayuts abroad, it is not a crisis in Belarus. This is not a crisis. We had a panic and excitement. "
Comment by the former Minister Alexander Sosnová:
"It's not panic and excitement, but a real crisis. And he arose not today, but for a long time. And the authorities did nothing to stop the consequences. "
"They walked and walked stumbled. All are asking questions. 60 people went, they know how, let's go talk to the people. Asked who is to blame? Why does not cut off the head of a hitherto guilty? There is a fault. But you can not sprinkle ashes on her head. "
On nuclear power plant
But building a nuclear power plant. Price $ 7 billion. 2000000000-social infrastructure. Credits will be given. But people do not. I appointed director general, I svetse around looking for him. And so have a lot of specialists! We steal them, lured from other countries.
"Moan in the newspapers that the economy is not the same, and we do not change, they are people who know nothing of the economy.
What reforms? We're told it's privatization, to sell the company. I do not mind. You can sell, but more expensive. It's not my thing.
No one in my pocket other people's money is not found.
"Do you know who is sharpening his teeth on our businesses, and especially the" Belaruskali ". We say privatize it and others. I was crawling on plyastunsku here to be upgraded. They're the best in Europe. Under the reforms, the government understand the pick up and give private traders.
Such privatization is not needed. One of the most valuable in our "Belaruskali". We are even prepared to privatize it. Conditions spelled out. 30000000000 I named a price. On the table, and 25% of yours.
So take it easy. Today, a lot of sounds of violence, especially in the so-called independent media. "
"When they say, let's change the structure of the economy, I say:" You have to change it, but you need to find a trillion dollars. "
"The construction industry rose from the ruins and ashes."
It is necessary that in the agro was hot water to a milkmaid in the evening to the man lay down in bed erased.
But eating is what. Not enough money? A few months and we come out of this situation.
We close our borders and we will buy only what we need to import.
Comment economist Michael Zaleski:
"Joined" perfect "North model. And I as a fan of taekwondo believe that this model is viable. When everyone in the country will throw their weight by an average of 12 kg, we will live. What are there. "
If the Czech Republic lent us, we got about three million garbage and I spun around the world, people could not feed.
On the example of agriculture, we have spent a lot of money and got carried away including through the issuance.
Vasily Leonov, "Only ignorant people can tell that our technique best"
"What is there to comment? Who buys it? I did not so long ago in Russia had practical experience of contacts Belarusian agricultural machinery and imported. It is incomparable. Only the ignorant, illiterate person can tell that our technology is the best. This is either a lie or a mistake.
Engineering — this is an extremely capital-intensive industry. And the world is a tremendous competition. And the whole world brand updates, funds, equipment and technology in mechanical engineering is very fast: every
By the way, this "sales representative in Germany" organized co-production of combine harvesters, but on the basis of technology and in cooperation with the German side. And the president represented a promising model. But representatives of the former Minister and quickly put … . "
About the Belarusian economic model
Nowhere is our model collapsed and will not collapse. A thorn in the eye for some this model. From this model, many have copied a lot. We will not retreat one iota from this model. No need to go out and marriage official language, that we should be tightening its belt. None of the situation to tighten their belts. We will go our own way. We were not easy because of objective and subjective reasons.
Along the perimeter are clicked his teeth and that we will not soon zvalilisya.Getaga.
We got such an economy. Many say that it is necessary restructuring and reform. And what does it mean? What do we mean by reform? And through you, I want to ask this question to all egghead.
Who will give me a trillion dollars to change the structure of the economy? And how many years it takes?
Lev Margolin Economist: "If the president does not know what the restructuring and reform of the economy, I explain to him.
The economy must function only effective workplaces. And ineffective — should be eliminated. And all that is supported from the state budget (I do not mean to agriculture as a separate topic here), should be sent to float freely. Survive — so survive. Will not survive — so do not survive.
A state that money is better spent on something to support the social workers and the businesses, if they remain without work. That's it. No higher mathematics is not here. "
On the panic posed journalists about the Internet
Other methods of trying to destabilize Belarus and through the basket this
-Internet. It approved the approach in other countries.
Lukashenko: Advised not to hold the press conference, because the situation is complex and may be different issues. I propose to discuss the most pressing issues. I want to hear different opinions on the processes in the country. Let's be honest and unbiased. In the panic that occurred, a large proportion of journalists who do not think those journalists who are present here. The excitement in the consumer markets created with the participation of the media.
