Lukashenko: People of Belarus, Russia have become even more united

MINSK, 3 April (BelTA) - The people of Belarus and Russia have become even more united and stronger, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with Governor of Kaluga Oblast of Russia Vladislav Shapsha on 3 April, BelTA has learned.

“In recent years - and we state this openly - our countries, Russia and Belarus, have become much closer to each other. This is not only thanks to our relations at the highest political level, but, as always, thanks to our contacts with the regions of the Russian Federation. We have launched a lot of efforts at the level of governments, enterprises and organizations, looking for ways out of the difficult situation around our countries together. This has united our nations even more (and we can see it) and made us stronger,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The president is convinced that a significant contribution to the record-high trade between Belarus and Russia in 2022 was made by the implementation of agreements with the heads of Russian regions. Active contacts with Kaluga Oblast is no exception here. “They did not stop for a single day, thanks to which we have created a certain reserve. I will not hide it - our goal is to surpass $1 billion in trade and achieve a full balance,” the head of state said.
