MOSCOW, July 2. /TASS/. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin sent a greeting telegram to Belarus’s President Alexander Lukashenko on the republic’s Day of Independence, the Kremlin’s press service said on Sunday.
The Russian president said this holiday is a reminder of a great heroic deed of those who more than seven decades earlier liberated Belarus from the Nazis.
"Friendship and mutual assistance, which developed in the tough years of war, continue to be a strong basis for the union relations between our countries," the telegram reads.
Putin spoke with satisfaction about the positive dynamics of the bilateral cooperation in various spheres, about highly effective cooperation in the Eurasian Economic Union, CSTO and other multilateral organizations and expressed confidence in further development of the entire complex of mutually advantageous Russian-Belarusian relations for the benefit of the fraternal peoples, the press service said in a statement.
