Lukashenka boasts of 50th place in UN rating


Alyaksandr Lukashenka: "According to the rating of the United Nations, we got to the top 50 countries in the world on the Human Development Index. This is the best result among the CIS countries. The index which we do not define."

According to the United Nations rating, Belarus is ranked 50th, being ahead of, for example, Panama and Brazil, where the economy develops very well, but there are still not enough social programs for the poor. Neighboring Lithuania and Latvia, often criticized by the Belarusian ideologists for the high prices and the collapse of the industry, have much better results than Belarus.
