Alexander Poznyak appointed as Chairman of Orsha District Executive Committee

MINSK, 7 August (BelTA) – Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko approved the appointment of Alexander Poznyak as Chairman of the Orsha District Executive Committee. Prior to that, Alexander Poznyak held the position of Assistant to the President - Inspector for Vitebsk Oblast, BelTA has learned

The previous head of the district, seeing the abundance of new tasks, understood that it will be difficult for him to cope with the workload due to the health issues. In addition, such large districts, as Orsha District, need strong leadership to become an example to be followed by other district centers.

The president noted that Alexander Poznyak is well versed in these issues. Appointing a person from the outside means postponing, for at least six months, the modernization of the district. “We need to reconstruct it, to upgrade it. You are the person well-versed in these issues. This is the presidential instruction to you. You will not be left without my attention. I visit the district several times a year, and for me this is a matter of principle,” the head of state noted.

Oleg Poskrobko, who served as First Deputy Minister of Housing and Utilities, has been appointed Chairman of the Soligorsk District Executive Committee. He is one of the active members of the group which deals with the reform of housing and utilities services. Alexander Lukashenko believes that Oleg Poskrobko together with other specialists should complete the work in this direction.

In addition, Vladimir Belov has been appointed head of the Gantsevichi District Executive Committee, Alexander Doroshenko head of the Drogichin District Executive Committee, Andrei Bulavkin chairman of the Beshenkovichi District Executive Committee, Pavel Nalivaiko chairman of the Osipovichi District Executive Committee and Dmitry Ruban chairman of the Khotimsk District Executive Committee.
