Interaction between Belarus and Russia continues at the regional level too. Now the sides boast more than 300 agreements between the regions of both countries. Contributing to this friendship will be the forum of regions of the two countries, due soon. This is another platform for future development and contracting.
Boris Batura, Chairman of the Public Association Twin Cities:
Very much depends on the leaders of the twin cities. If they interact with each other, and even better if their families cooperate, I can tell you that then they can do very much.
Alexander Surikov, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the Republic of Belarus:
We don't need even slight cooling in Belarus-Russia relations. We should all the time maintain their degree of need and support and improve them.
Belarus and Russia cooperate in politics, economics, industry, education and culture. The citizens of the two countries have equal rights in the territory of the Union State.
