Belarus is ready to welcome all the Ukrainians, who are willing to live and work well in the country, President Aliaksandr Lukashenka said at today’s government conference on employment and migration matters.
According to him, the number of people coming from Ukraine has been rising recently.
“Certainly we will help such people. A lot has been said about it already. We will welcome everyone, who wants to live and work well. There are areas and enterprises in Belarus where workforce is in extremely short supply,” the President noted.
“However, one should bear in mind that the open policy meant to attract labor migrants does not always succeed as Europe’s example indicates”.
To prevent interethnic conflicts in our country, one should make the most of Belarusian citizens’ resources instead of employing foreign workforce in so-called non-prestigious positions, Lukashenka stressed.
