It is necessary to fix the way food markets operate and to ensure access to them for farmers, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he toured a farmers' market near Minsk on 14 May, BelTA has learned.
“For me, people are of paramount importance. I am from the countryside. I know what it means to grow something with your own hands and to be able to sell it. People should be able to freely sell their products and have an unobstructed access to the market,” the head of state said.
