The president also signed a law on ratification of an intergovernmental agreement with Armenia on cooperation in commodity supplies to the South Caucasus republic. The document signed during Putin’s visit to Yerevan in December last year, stipulates Russia’s duty-free supplies of petroleum products, natural gas and natural uncut diamonds to Armenia before the ex-Soviet republic joins the Eurasian integration space based on the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.

Partnership binds the two states to maintain information and cultural centres engaged in educational work among national diasporas. The treaty also seeks integration between Russia and Kazakhstan in defense, trade and economic development, investment and science.
