Oleg Matskevich appointed Vitebsk Oblast First Vice Governor

MINSK, 7 August (BelTA) – Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko has approved the appointment of Oleg Matskevich as Vitebsk Oblast First Vice Governor, BelTA has learned.

Oleg Matskevich served as Vitebsk Oblast Vice Governor before.

The president stressed that harvesting is the main challenge for the northern region of the country this year. “They always have to work in an extreme situation. However, I doubt they have had such a year before. The situation is difficult and we must help Vitebsk Oblast to save the harvest,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

The head of state reiterated his instruction to the regional authorities which is to develop a new structure for the areas under crops. “Grain crops should be sown on the areas that can yield the best results. You have a winter to decide on crop rotation and the new structure of the areas. It is vital for Vitebsk Oblast,” he stressed.

This year’s weather conditions create difficulties to the harvesting campaign in the country, added Alexander Lukashenko. The president instructed to organize the redeployment of farm machinery where necessary. “The redeployment of machinery will help Vitebsk Oblast, the north of Minsk Oblast and Mogilev Oblast,” the head of state said.
