Besides, Lukashenka promised once again that the average salary will reach 500 USD by the end of the year:
"The average salary grew till nearly 4 million roubles. This is a bit more than 470 USD. We will reach 500 USD by the end of the year for sure... However, we must not forget that the growth of the salaries together with the growth of the work efficiency remains the key principle of our activity. We should provide the people an opportunity to earn money".
Let us remind you, the Belarusians should have had a 500 USD salary before the presidential election-2010.
