Interior Affairs Minister comments on acts of violence in army

The order in the army depends not only on the senior officers, but on the junior officers as well. This statement was made by the Minister of Interior Affairs of Belarus on October 25.

Whilst answering the journalists’ questions, Igor Shunevich commented on the acts of violence in the army.

Igor Shunevich, Minister of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Belarus:
Not only senior officers but junior officers provide order in military units and on ships. And of course, everything depends on them in the main issues- in hazing. The order at times requires strict subordination and completion of public functions, let’s say. Even in cleaning. However, the distribution of duties, which must be fair, honest and in accordance with certain merits, it has always been, still is and will be in the army and the fleet. As for humiliation, various pressures, including psychological and physical pressure on a young soldier, it is disgrace for everyone.
