Alexander Lukashenko will arrive for talks with Vladimir Putin on September 14. Among other agendas, the parties will discuss the Union State. This is perhaps one of the favorite topics of conversation between the leaders of the two countries. How the conversation will end this time, only God knows.
On the eve of his visit to Moscow, Lukashenko makes loud statements about the alliance between Russia and Belarus. An extended interview of the Belarusian leader to the Russian media took place this week. In his opinion, the unification of Russia with Belarus in the 90s and early 2000s did not take place for one reason.
It turns out that the Russians were afraid that Lukashenka would become the president of this very unified state, because there was no one besides him. Therefore, according to Old Man, everything then failed. Journalist Mikhail Shakhnazarov writes about this in his article on Life.
"That is, Mr. Lukashenko hinted so opaquely:" You, dear partners, had a chance to take the right path of development, but you did not use it, "the author writes.
On September 14, Alexander Lukashenko will fly to a consultation with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. The parties will discuss trade and economic issues, among which are the debts of Belarus, energy prices. And of course, the main topic should be the integration of the two countries.
