Lukashenko discusses work of Belarusian Society of Hunters and Fishermen


Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko has heard out a report on the work of the Belarusian Society of Hunters and Fishermen, BelTA has learned.

Attending the meeting were Chairman of the Belarusian Society of Hunters and Fishermen Igor Shunevich and Deputy Prime Minister Leonid Zayats.

Addressing Igor Shunevich, the head of state said: “As far as I understand, you initiated this conversation because the decision taken by the government is not exactly what the Society wants.”

The president noted that all these issues will be tackled at the state level excluding any departmental interests. “You understand that there are state interests, personal interests, the interests of the Society. We should approach these issues smartly, in the best interests of the state and members of this organization,” said the Belarusian leader.

One of the talking points was the production of ammunition for smoothbore weapons. “I don't see any problem here. Let's think of the best way to do it,” said the head of state.

Another issue dealt with adjustments to laws regulating the circulation of weapons and ammunition. “We can also consider this issue,” the president noted.

The next topic concerned the regulation of the number of animals and birds listed in the Red Book of Belarus. “This issue is of paramount importance for the state, it is crucial for the image of our country,” the head of state remarked.

A separate issue had to do with the charter of the public association. “What is there that caused the dissension with the government?” the president asked.

Aleksandr Lukashenko expressed readiness to discuss a number of other issues relevant to the interests of the state: “Like your claim for a separate building in Minsk; this issue has allegedly not been resolved yet. And a number of pending issues that got stalled at the level of government officials up to the president.”
