Now the country’s President Alexander Lukashenko wants to redirect $ 10 billion to other investment projects, Izvestia reported in reference to the Belarusian Finance Ministry.
The State Duma reported that the money is likely to go to support state-owned enterprises in Belarus, including the heavy engineering, agricultural and medical sectors.
The Belarusian parliament also confirmed to the newspaper that Lukashenko would arrive in Moscow on 22 February to discuss financial issues. But he is not going to ask for anything, the department assured, adding that he “wants to discuss economic consolidation”.
The meeting of the two leaders will be held in Sochi on 22nd.
