“The upcoming Forum of the Union State Regions with the participation of the presidents of Russia and Belarus will give an even deeper new impetus to interregional cooperation,” Mishustin continued, announcing the next meeting of the leaders of the two countries.
The Prime Minister also said, that Western states, imposing international sanctions as punishment for the full-scale invasion of the Russian Armed Forces in Ukraine, are trying to cut off Belarus and Russia from the international financial system, slow down development and worsen the life of ordinary citizens.
