Earlier, Vladimir Putin sent birthday greetings to the President of Belarus.
The message reads, in part:
“It is difficult to overestimate your contribution to the development of the friendly alliance between our countries. To a large extent, it was your personal efforts that supported the course of our bilateral cooperation, which became more constructive and mutually beneficial and now has a positive impact on many different aspects of life in Russia and Belarus.
I would like to reaffirm our readiness to continue our joint work both for the purpose of strengthening cooperation within the Union State and for further progress of Eurasian integration.”
