MOSCOW, 7 December (BelTA) – Belarus and Russia managed to create a new type of interstate union - the Union State, State Secretary of the Union State Dmitry Mezentsev said at the media forum “Belarus - Russia: Equal Union, Common History, Shared Future” timed to the 23rd anniversary of the signing of the Union State Treaty, BelTA has learned.

“The plans of the national leaders, parliaments and governments to create an interstate union of a new type have been brought to fruition,” Dmitry Mezentsev said.

“Given the challenges and threats that Belarus and Russia are facing as part of the shameless, outrageous, immoral and illegal political, economic and information pressure and sanctions, the Union State is an example of an alliance, a large-scale and deep engagement,” the state secretary stressed.

Dmitry Mezentsev noted that the Union State Treaty has a large-scale and far-reaching potential, and he called the 28 Union State programs signed last year a new stage in economic integration. “This is a desire to boost the economic potential while unconditionally preserving the independence and sovereignty of the two states,” he said.
