Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan agreed to conduct a coordinated policy in key sectors of the economy: energy, industry, agriculture, transport, Lukashenko noted. “Thus, we are forming the biggest in the entire post-Soviet space economic union of countries with an overall population of 170 million,” he said.
