According to him, there is a significant increase in mutual trade between the CIS countries.
“On the one hand, we admit that this is due to the drop in trade with third countries. Yet, on the other hand, objectively, our states have intensified their interaction in the manufacturing industry, transport, and energy in recent months. We need to work harder within the framework of the CIS to strengthen cooperation and keep our economies up and running,” Sergei Lebedev said.
