Belarus’ own coronavirus vaccine will be available for the general public in H1 2023, Belarusian Healthcare Minister Dmitry Pinevich told reporters on 12 August, BelTA has learned.

“We believe that the vaccine will be available for use in the first half of 2023. When we discuss our strategies, we try to understand whether our research outputs will still be relevant at the end of 2022. Although time is not on our side,the fast pace we are moving at will no way affect quality or safety,” Dmitry Pinevich said.

A reminder, on 12 August Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko inspected the BelVitunipharm company where he was briefed on the progress to create Belarus’ own coronavirus vaccine.

Dmitry Pinevich recalled that this project consists of three stages: laboratory testing, pilot production and mass production. It was decided to locate the pilot production at BelVitunipharm (a separate building will be built here for this purpose) and Belmedpreparaty. “This decision was approved after a serious scrutiny. The mechanism for launching a joint venture will have a direct impact on economic performance. We do not need to set up a separate enterprise now, we will utilize the tried-and-tested premises that meet the highest standards,” the minister added.

The Constitutional Commission will submit its proposals regarding the status of the Belarusian People's Congress to Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko for consideration, Chairman of the Constitutional Commission, Chairman of the Constitutional Court of Belarus Piotr Miklashevich told reporters on 11 August, BelTA has learned.

“We have outlined three matters that require consideration of the head of state. One of them is the constitutional status of the Belarusian People's Congress, since it is a new institution in the system of government. It should have certain constitutional powers and at the same time fit into the current system of government in our country and communication mechanisms [between government agencies]. Therefore, we will go through this issue once again today and will discuss it with the participation of the head of state,” Piotr Miklashevich said.

The second question is about the death penalty. “There are three options here. The first is to keep it intact and not amend Article 24,” he said. After all, this matter was decided in the 1996 referendum where the majority of people voted to retain capital punishment. If some new circumstances arise, this matter should be considered in a special referendum. After all, today the president also has the right to impose a moratorium on the execution or use of the death penalty. “This matter can be addressed stage by stage, like in other states. There were proposals to amend this provision, Article 24, and establish the death penalty only for terrorism resulting in the loss of human life. The third option is to consider the abolition of the death penalty altogether. These three options require the consideration by the head of state,” the chairman of the Constitutional Court said.

The third matter is the nomination of candidates to councils of deputies by labor collectives. “We have this provision in the Constitution, but time is changing. Today's labor collectives are a far cry from those of the Soviet times. There are many private businesses. This is one thing. Another thing is that nomination implies participation in a certain political campaign. Therefore, the question is: should we retain a possibility for labor collectives to nominate candidates or should we leave it to political parties and citizens? We also intend to discuss this issue with the head of state,” Piotr Miklashevich said.
