The Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko expressed a concern about the decline in trade turnover with Russia and other Eurasian countries. He announced it, during a meeting with the governor of Kostroma region of Russia Sergey Sitnikov, reports BELTA.
"Previously, our (Belarus and Kostroma) mutual trade volume exceeded 100 million dollars. It’s not that we have such a large trade with all countries. But in the past two years, that volume significantly reduced, which is very troubling to me,” he said. “The question is why we created a single economic space not only in our ally country but also in the EEU. "
Lukashenko noted, that the trade turnover has significantly decreased in the Eurasian Economic Union in the past two years. "I'm talking about it, but Moscow doesn’t get me correctly. We need to discuss this issue, find the narrow places, and glue our relations. Instead of getting rid of what is negative, they ban the supply of our beef to Russia. How can we understand it, "he said.
