Regarding the Eurasian Economic Union (Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan), Lukashenko said: “The union began with the initiative of President Vladimir Putin, who invited everyone to his home, and at that time we were talking with the former President of Ukraine Kuchma. , and we discussed integration in the post-Soviet space, and 28 documents were discussed.

The forum is timed to coincide with the meeting of the Eurasian Supreme Economic Council, which will be attended by the heads of the member states of the Eurasian Economic Union and observer states.

The forum will discuss the implementation of various projects, the Union’s international activities and the expansion of trade and economic ties.
