All the conditions for everyone to be able to earn a decent salary have been enabled in Belarus, however, it is necessary to make some effort to get the money, president Alyaksandr Lukashenka said during his visit to the town of Malaryta, Brest region on Monday.

“Only lazy people don’t earn well in Belarus. There is no war going on here, is there? You just have to make an effort,” he said.


Everyone should count primarily on their own abilities, Lukashenka stressed.

“You have to understand that nobody will get money without an effort,” he said but added that the state will always support those, who truly need it.


According to the Belarusian leader, the state highly prioritizes large families as far as state aid is concerned.

Army personnel represent another category. “We have to help the military because they cannot do work on the side,” Lukashenka said.
