Alexander Lukashenko at a press conference in December of last year, spoke about the wages of Belarusians in 2010, the year:
"We have a duty to bring the average salary up to $ 500. This figure is sacred for us. It was approved on 5-Belarusian Assembly years. Pensions are also expected to grow by 8-10 percent. "
