Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko said that if the West starts to confiscate and nationalize the property of Belarus, Minsk will respond in kind.
Golovchenko made such a statement in an interview with the Belarus 1 TV channel, which was broadcast on Saturday .
The Prime Minister noted that “there are threats from Western politicians, statements about nationalization plans, but there are no precedents for direct confiscation or confiscation of Belarusian property.”
That is why, according to him, even Belarus has not yet taken such measures.
On the part of EU countries in relation to Belarusian enterprises, as Golovchenko said: “There is pressure, worsening business conditions, prohibition or limitation of the ability to make payments.”
In particular, sanatoriums restricted the entry of Belarusian citizens “due to visa restrictions”. “For the potash terminal,” he noted, “the impossibility of entry and shipment of goods.”
Belarus is taking “synchronous” response actions.
As an example, Golovchenko recalled that Minsk had identified an extensive list of resident companies Belarus, the shares of which are owned by residents of enemy countries.
Alienation of these shares is prohibited. “If you want to work in Belarus, please work, there will be no obstacles,” the prime minister said. “But if you wanted to leave everything here, run away and take the money, I'm sorry.”
He concluded: “As long as we're treated this way, we'll take exactly the same precautions here.”
