“Yesterday I made a working trip to Minsk. We met with the prime ministers of Belarus and Uzbekistan to review the Belarusian producer of equipment, including construction and municipal machinery. We will do everything necessary to strengthen industrial cooperation between the enterprises of our countries, which is especially needed in the conditions of economic sanctions from unfriendly states,” Mikhail Mishustin said.
