Lukashenka names irreplaceable official

Vice PM Uladzimir Syamashka cannot be replaced now, Alyaksandr Lukashenka believes.

"There is no good replacement for Syamashka at the moment. I have alternatives but they are not as good as Syamashka,” quotes the state leader.

Lukashenka has criticized the vice PM a lot, he recalled. However, Syamashka is experienced and highly skilled. “Any young man may be jealous of his capacity for work although he is already over 60 years old. He has some drawbacks, but they can be forgiven,” the Belarusian President claimed.

Syamashka is in charge of the industry and oil and energy complexes, he will also supervise the construction of the Belarusian NPP and others things.
