The office of the Minsk region state-owned newspaper ‘Minskaya prauda’ was phoned by a Salihorsk resident, who was indignant at the fact that the only property declared by Valery Kiryenka, head manager of the Belaruskali major enterprise, running for Minsk Regional Council, was a car. At the same time, his annual income amounts to BYR 156,000,000.

The Republican unitary enterprise "Production Amalgamation "Belaruskali" is one of the world's biggest producers and it is the biggest producer and supplier of potash mineral fertilizers on the territory of the CIS.

Head of the Minsk Regional Election Commission says the Salihorsk local commission should have checked the income declaration and reported no violations.
