Lukashenko: Unreasonable subsidies will be abolished to save money to boost birth rate

MINSK, 21 August (BelTA) – The money saved on abolishing unreasonable subsidies will be used to boost the birth rate, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said at a session to discuss a new mechanism of state support of families with children on 21 August, BelTA has learned.

“We are gradually abolishing unreasonable subsidies and people see it. In this regard, the money that we will save on it will be channeled to support mothers and children,” the head of state said.

The President noted that the country will do whatever it needs to encourage the birth of two, three and more children”. “However, this requires resources and we should keep in mind that we can do no more than we can do. Of course, we can plan a great number of events; however our plans will depend on our budget. If we have more money, we will do even more,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

Speaking about the support of mothers, families raising children, Alexander Lukashenko noted: “Two children is a must. The birth of three, four children should be encouraged. As we keep abolishing subsidies, the money will be used for this purpose. At least, as long as I am President, this matter will not be neglected”. The head of state ordered to pay due attention to this field. He noted: “Even if we do not have any money to provide subsidized housing loans and run housing construction projects, we will give the last money we have to families with many children so that they could build housing. This is our position”.
