Права гражданина Беларуси


Thank you very much for the opportunity to feel a special "superpower" in me! It is very important to follow the algorithm correctly and consciously, without wasting time and resources, go straight to the authorities on which the solution of the issue depends. Sometimes there is no desire to pursue the truth due to improper actions, and this results in the incompleteness of what has been started. It is very convenient, so that people do not have the knowledge and capabilities to defend their rights and interests! Enough is enough! It's time to know your rights!
