Minsk: Little did Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko know that his speech will be misinterpreted by the Belarusians this much that they will shed clothes for a day at work.
Lukashenko recently made a speech at the All-Belarusian People’s Assembly during the 5th Belarusian People's Congress in Minsk, in which he had appealed to the people to find employment opportunities instead of completely being dependent on the government.
However, a number of people muddled the word “razvivatsya” that the President had used to mean ‘develop’ with “razdivatsya” which means ‘undress’.
Acting in accordance with the “presidential decree”, people across the country are using the hashtag #раздеватьсяиработать – loosely translating to #GetUndressedAndGoToWork – and sharing nudies on social media.
Here are some of the posts:
