Presidents of Belarus and Russia Alexander Lukashenko and Vladimir Putin “toughly agreed” not to return or support foreign companies that left the named states. The RIA_Kremlinpool Telegram channel writes about this.

“Gone – go away. We will develop our competencies, our production ourselves. And we will manage,” Lukashenka said.

He also urged to “wave hand” to such companies and investors. Addressing officials at a personnel meeting today, Lukashenka advised them to cross themselves, because foreign enterprises left property to Belarus.
