Andreichenko: Information and economic war is carried out against Belarus and Russia

MINSK, 15 April (BelTA) - Information and economic war has been unleashed against Belarus and Russia, Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus Vladimir Andreichenko said as he met with Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Russia to Belarus Boris Gryzlov on 15 April, BelTA has learned.

“I am happy to greet you in the House of Representatives and I want to officially congratulate you once again on the start of your diplomatic mission in the Republic of Belarus. You know our country very well. We have met with you more than once. You understand very well how important it is for us to develop and expand the Belarusian-Russian cooperation. This is true especially in this difficult time with such unprecedented pressure, economic sanctions, economic blockade underway. Let's say, this is strangulation of Belarus and Russia by sanctions and intimidation. In fact, an information and economic war has been launched against Belarus and Russia,” said Vladimir Andreichenko.

The speaker expressed confidence that the countries would hold out and become stronger. “Our answer to all these threats is obvious. Last year out mutual trade exceeded $40 billion. In January-February 2022 the bilateral trade rose by 30% compared with the same stretch a year ago. Up to 80% of mutual settlements between business entities are carried out in the national currency. Today the two countries are actively working on the Union State development,” he said.
