Lukashenko wants more efficiency from Belarusian police

13.03.2020

The number of those who want to shatter the Belarusian state from the inside is not decreasing, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he heard out a report of Interior Affairs Minister Yuri Karayev on 13 March, BelTA has learned.

“Some time ago we agreed that as soon as you get fully acquainted with the state of affairs, you will report on the situation and tell me what you need. I think that you, having analyzed the results of the previous year, can already make corresponding conclusions and say what else is needed to be done in the law enforcement to make police more efficient,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The head of state remarked that there are drawbacks in the operation of all state bodies, including police. “But we cannot do without police because police inspectors work with people, ministers are not isolated from the society. Without police we cannot ensure stability in our society,” the president is convinced.

In his words, this does not even pertain to certain political campaigns: many campaigns were held in the country, and this one will also take place in a calm way. “We need to look further – stable society is a priority. We need to keep both eyes open: the number of those who want to shatter our state from the inside is not decreasing. Unfortunately, the majority of those who are willing to do so are the so-called Belarusian citizens. It is even difficult to call them citizens. Everything is bad for them, the only thing they want to do is to criticize the authorities and disintegrate the society, to make worse. They use any moment. I read various statements of such people not only in the Internet, but also in the so-called mass media,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said. “Therefore, I believe that police are playing a huge role in ensuring stability in our society.”
