It’s a point of pride for Belarusian President Alyaksandr Lukashenka: No toilet paper in our sausage.

Lukashenka says that’s one thing that makes Belarusian products better than Russian ones.

He told Russian reporters on October 17 that Russia had lowered its food-quality standards after the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union “while we, thanks to Lukashenka, retained state standards.”

“Belarusian [food] is of substantially higher in quality. There is no toilet paper in the salami and never was,” he said.

He added that “such facts have been discovered at Russian enterprises — toilet paper, soy, all kinds of additives.”

Both toilet paper and sausage were in short supply in the final years of the Soviet Union.
