Mishustin: Belarus, Russia gradually advance integration despite sanctions

MOSCOW, 15 April (BelTA) - Belarus and Russia are gradually advancing the integration despite sanctions, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said during the talks with Belarusian counterpart Roman Golovchenko in Moscow on 15 April, BelTA has learned. 

"Despite the increasing sanctions pressure, Russia and Belarus are gradually advancing the Union State integration, jointly implementing the guidelines to the Union State Treaty for the next three years adopted by the Supreme State Council in St. Petersburg on 29 January with the participation of the presidents," Mikhail Mishustin said.

"In 2023, we set another record by hitting RUB4.2 trillion or almost Br150 billion in mutual trade," he said. The Russian prime minister stressed that Belarus increased its merchandise export to foreign markets using the Russian transport infrastructure. "Last year, transit traffic more than doubled compared to 2022, up to 20 million tonnes," he stated.

Mikhail Mishustin also recalled that the meeting of the heads of government has taken place immediately after the talks between the leaders of the two countries, Aleksandr Lukashenko and Vladimir Putin. "The presidents reached important agreements on the further development of Russian-Belarusian cooperation, on deepening the integration in the Union State. The task of our governments is to ensure the clear, unconditional implementation of all the decisions that our leaders have made at the highest level," Mikhail Mishustin stressed.
