“July 3 is a memorable date in the history of Belarus. The liberation of Minsk from the Nazi invaders was one of the most important victories attained by our fathers and grandfathers during the Great Patriotic War. Their legacy of fraternal friendship and mutual assistance continues to serve as the solid foundation for the further development of Russian-Belarusian ties,” the President of Russia wrote in his message.
Vladimir Putin expressed gratitude to the President of Belarus for the hospitality the Russian delegation recently enjoyed in the capital of Belarus and expressed confidence that the implementation of the decisions adopted at the meeting of the Supreme State Council of the Union State would help the advancement of bilateral integration.
The President of Russia also confirmed the resolve to continue to work constructively within the Union State and the Eurasian Economic Union in the interests of both nations.
