Alexander Lukashenko also asked about the preparations for the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of Belarusian police in 2017. “We should celebrate this event properly. Sometimes people criticize our work. However, the Belarusian police have proved their worth. We still have a lot to do in this respect. Anyway, a century is a considerable period of time,” the Belarusian leader noted.
