Lukashenka: Energy sector a mafia-style 'state within the state'


Powermen have
created their own state within a state, some independent “mafioso-like”
organization or band, BELTA reports. Lukashenka claimed it at a meeting dedicated
to the development of the energy sector on April 16.

The increase
of gas and electricity tariffs was discussed there. The tariffs can incase only
together with the increase of the population's incomes, Lukashenka noted. The income
growth should be ahead of the price growth.
