MOSCOW, 29 February (BelTA) – The construction of a fast railway between Minsk and Moscow will become a powerful impulse for the development of the Union State of Belarus and Russia. State Secretary of the Union State of Belarus and Russia Dmitry Mezentsev made the remark as he commented on the statement made by President of Russia Vladimir Putin during an annual address to the parliament, BelTA has learned.

Dmitry Mezentsev said: “It is significant that in his address to the Federal Assembly President of Russia Vladimir Putin mentioned the creation of a network of high-speed railways between cities of Russia as a priority.” The president also mentioned the construction of a fast railway between Minsk and Moscow. According to Dmitry Mezentsev, it is important considering Belarus and Russia are bound by the Union State Foundation Treaty and persistently advance this integration.

The project’s implementation will become a powerful impulse for the development of the Union State of Belarus and Russia, Dmitry Mezentsev noted. It will contribute to the expansion of economic ties and interregional cooperation. It will make an even greater contribution to ensuring equal rights of citizens to education, work, advanced training, and rehabilitation. It will allow them to learn more about the common history and geography from Brest to Vladivostok, the state secretary stressed.

In his address Vladimir Putin pointed out the need to develop transport infrastructure, including the construction of fast railways. “The first line will go across Tver and our ancient capital Veliky Novgorod to connect Moscow and St. Petersburg. Then railways will be built to Kazan, to the Urals, to Rostov-on-Don, to the Black Sea shore, to Minsk in the brotherly country of Belarus, and to other popular destinations,” he said.
