Large-scale safety checks in public places in Belarus to continue

The fire in a Kemerovo mall in Russia became an occasion to once again pay close attention to the fulfillment of safety requirements in Belarus.

On March 27, during a working meeting with Interior Minister Igor Shunevich, the President of Belarus demanded large-scale inspections of public places and, if there are shortcomings that could affect people's safety, the Belarusian leader asked to punish the owners of such businesses.

"Check so that nothing bad happens afterwards, so that we never feel that pain," the President asked.
