The President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko ordered from Monday, August 24, to close the enterprises whose workers are participating in strikes. The head of state said this on Saturday, August 22, speaking at a rally in Grodno.
“Then we’ll figure out who will work,” Interfax quotes him.
Earlier in August, at a meeting with employees of Belaruskali, Lukashenko said that those who wish can go on strike, but should know that there will be those who want to replace them at the workplace, in particular, residents of neighboring Ukraine, tut.by reports.
