In his message, Putin stressed that the Union State mechanisms ensure a high level of cooperation between Moscow and Minsk in the political and economic spheres.
On the celebration, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov noted that the Kremlin attaches great importance to the unity between the two countries, which in itself represents the most advanced format of integration since the disappearance of the Soviet Union.
