Lukashenko: Fair rules in land relations are crucial for stability in society

15.02.2022

The head of state stressed that land relations are one of the most important in the life of any country. “Fair rules in land management are crucial for stability in society. It was the reason for many wars and conflicts in the world. Territorial claims are considered to be the most difficult both in interstate relations and in domestic, even private matters,” the Belarusian leader said.

In his words, the administration of land relations is not just a set of rules. According to him, the legislation governing land relations represent a centuries-old experience and even the traditions of land use in a particular territory by a particular nation. “A reverent attitude towards land is embedded deep in the mentality of people, in their historical memory, culture and traditions. I must say that all the nations are very similar to each other, if we take the criterion of land relations. They all value the land they live on and are ready to fight for it,” said Aleksandr Lukashenko.

The head of state recalled that at the dawn of independence Belarus chose to develop land relations in a reasonable and evolutionary manner: “We could not allow the people to be robbed - to allow the land to be barbarically divided and redistributed among those who have access to it. Consistency remains the cornerstone of our policy. Recent years have proved that this approach fully meets the expectations of our people,” the Belarusian leader said.

For the majority of ordinary citizens, the land legislation is as important as the constitutional provisions, because it concerns them personally. “It is thanks to high standards in land use that we have made great progress in agriculture and ensured our food security. More than 40% of our territory is covered with forests, and being guided by the renewable use principles we have been gradually developing the timber industry,” the president said.
