Now everything has changed and they are asking us to supply foodstuff to them”, - claimed Lukashenka at the First meeting of Belarusian scientists in Minsk.

“The sudden increase in food prices is the factor of our currency security”, - noted A.Lukashenka speaking about the necessity to increase the productivity of the rural economy.

“You should not expect the prices for gas, oil and food to decrease. The real economic sector will reach this level too”, - said the Belarusian leader.
