"When the trouble came to Ukraine, then this flow increased, because there is no other way but through Belarus. We are a transit state, at the heart of Europe. You would do not go round us and you do not need to. Our network of roads and main thoroughfares are good. We pay great attention to road construction. We have good logistics centers and we will double their number in the next 2 to 3 years. Everything is in place to serve traffic flows in Belarus. But the most important thing is that we have professionals and experience,” the Belarusian leader said.
