Bars In Belarus Urged To Sell Cow-Blood Snacks

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. The former Soviet Republic of Belarus still feels Soviet today. The government props up state-run companies, but this is bloody ridiculous. A bar owner complained to the website Onliner about a letter demanding he sell Hematogen bars from a state health supplement company. The bars - apparently a hit in Soviet times - are made with cow's blood. The head of the company has defended the government, saying citizens should eat his Hematogen, not the lower quality stuff from Russia. It's MORNING EDITION.
