Gennady Zyuganov visits Belarus

In the Soviet times, pickles were an indispensible phenomenon of good life. On the last week of September 2017, the leaders of communist parties from former Soviet republics and even Cuba visited the capital of Belarus.

The plenum of the Central Council of the Union was held in Minsk. Gennady Zyuganov, the head of the Russian delegation and Communist Party leader, flew a few days before the meeting to get acquainted with the experience of some Belarusian enterprises.

Gennady Zyuganov is one of those Russian politicians who watch the development of the country with great attention, so he knows a lot about Belarus. Belarusian politicians also know Gennady Zyuganov pretty well.

Gennady Andreevich visited Grodno for the first time. So one of the main points of his tight schedule is not only to see the production, but also to see the sights. The Radziwills residence impressed the politician a lot.

Gennady Zyuganov visited the area of Nesvizh on the advice of Alexander Lukashenko. The Russian politician is interested in the Belarusian experience, which could be spread in Russia as well. First of all, he paid attention to industrial and agricultural ones.

Gennady Zyuganov, chairman of the Central Committee of the Communist Party, head of the Communist Party faction in the State Duma of the Russian Federation Federal Assembly:
Every 10th on the planet is starving. Unfortunately, the wave of these phenomena is now growing in Russia. Environmental problems are among the three most acute and current ones. We need to do everything to protect our planet. First of all, we need to raise people that will be smart and healthy, on the one hand, and mentally developed, on the other hand. Russia must have the base needed so as to feed children with selective products. It concerns the raw materials that are grown, the personnel that are engaged in the process and many other points.

“Recently my colleagues and I prepared a proposal, the law on school milk. Just that product and that appointment, where GOSTs should be incredibly tough,” says Gennady Zyuganov. “However, the quality was low, and even falsified.”

In the near future, Russia will accept the budget for 3 years. The politician hopes that the program will still be approved. Zyuganov is sure that the plant in Nesvizh is the project to be carried out in Russia as well. Automation level is rather high. What’s more, the enterprise works on local raw materials. And, by the way, it is export-oriented. The quality is assessed by taste.

Gennady Zyuganov:


Belarusians produce products that meet all the best world standards.

Everything is natural, and the technologies help you to save the best features of products. At the same time the storage time is impressive. We are satisfied and, therefore, Russia will do utmost to develop and support this industry. Moreover, we’ll try to build the same system in Russia.

Meanwhile, the salaries at the enterprise are rather good. There are free lunches and products at cost and other perks for the employees.

Gennady Zyuganov:
First of all, Belarusians saved history, friendship and respect for our victories. Secondly, you have saved bilingualism. This is our great heritage. The Belarusian people have a language of interethnic communication, and at the same time they have their native language, their own wonderful culture. You saved your songs.

Belarusians indeed are really proud of their culture and history. According to the Slavic traditions, the agrotown of Snov met the guests with music. Snov is considered to be the father of agrotowns in Belarus.

Gennady Zyuganov:
It is very important that there are agro towns in Belarus. You do not have abandoned fields; you take a good care of the forest. Belarusian forests look like good gardens. While in Russia forest fires hit a great number of regions.

Agriculture is both a competent leadership and modern technologies in the cultivation of land. And, of course, it is equipment. Both Belarusians and Russians produce it. Zyuganov believes that the future of the industry is in the cooperation of the neighboring countries.

Gennady Zyuganov:
The harvesters recently made in Belarus are not inferior to German or American models. At the same time, they are a third or even half cheaper. Your machine-building complex survived the hard times in the 90s. You have preserved science, technological culture. Theoretically, if the Russian Government were more responsible and attentive to it...

Belarus and Russia should not compete, but complement each other. It will be lucrative for both countries. I think that it is basically wrong to argue with each other. Each problem should be discussed and solved together. Russia is interested in receiving Belarusian dump trucks of excellent quality. Therefore, I support the idea of accumulating the potentials of our countries.

Belarus is not just a social state. You have a socio-patriotic state and a very spiritually developed people.

I congratulate you on this and envy you in a good way.
