They say that the idea of “ kickball '' citizens and guests of the country was born to Lukashenka after Belarusian state journalists presented to his father several jumpers with his photographs and quotes on his birthday last summer. Then he promised to launch a whole line of products with his sayings. And just before the New Year, the citizens were given a gift – opposite the Palace of Independence, where Lukashenka's residence is located, in the Zamok shopping center. a boutique with merchandise from the president was opened. & nbsp;
The crowd was really not small. But, apparently, it consisted of people “ initiated '' – officials of all kinds, from chairmen of State Committees to heads of agricultural holdings. However, there were quite a few young people among the first visitors. T-shirts produced by local businesses & nbsp; Bellegprom, the richness of shades does not differ – & nbsp; white, gray and black. But the set of sayings is impressive. Here and everyone is familiar: “ You can't tilt us '', “ Facts on the table '', “ Don't give your beloved '', “ They don't become presidents, they are born presidents. '' And lesser known ones: “ Take off your clothes and work '', “ No emergency. '' There are T-shirts with large portraits of Lukashenko, and there are sayings imitating the handwriting of the President of Belarus. The cost of the products is acceptable. The T-shirt costs & nbsp; 20 Belarusian rubles (580 – & nbsp; Russian), hoodies – & nbsp; 40 (1163 Russian rubles).
Chairman of the Bellegprom concern Tatyana Lugina, who herself stood behind the counter on the occasion of the solemn start of sales, told reporters that some of them grabbed T-shirts with “ whole boxes ''. What for? Well, for example, the head of one agricultural holding said that she had purchased T-shirts for the “ whole collective farm '': & nbsp; by the New Year, all board members will receive new clothes with the president's sayings. According to Lugina's observations, on the first day, T-shirts with the quotes “ Take off and work '' were most eagerly snapped up, and mainly young people showed interest in them. The hoodies were well at odds with the dictum “ You don't become presidents, they are born presidents. '' Older couples preferred the more polyrical inscriptions: “ Don't give your beloved. '' & Nbsp;
During the presentation of the store, it was promised that the “ First '' – will not be the last. Similar stores will appear in other cities soon. Population coverage must be comprehensive. Indeed, after the majority of boutiques selling goods with Belarusian symbols were closed in the country, a worthy replacement must be found. And what could be more relevant for Belarusians now & nbsp; large lettering in white on black: “ Take off your clothes and work ''?
