The statement of Alexander Lukashenko represents the news agency "BelTA":
Year will be very difficult. And they themselves are to blame, especially our neighbors have freaked out more problems than enough. And probably, years will still be needed to rake them. These are their problems, but the problems are also ours, since these are our main markets - Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan. With the European Union, things are not so simple. Our products go there, you know, through a stump-deck. They have very strongly defended their market; you will not break through there with the products that we have. In terms of the fact that we produce the nomenclature that they have - the same tractors, cars, food, clothing. Even if we are better in terms of quality and price, we will not be allowed in there anyway, at least it’s very difficult to get there.
