What Putin and Lukashenko agreed on.
The presidents of the Russian Federation and Belarus, Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko, at a meeting in Sochi on Monday, September 14, agreed on a large loan.
“We agreed that Russia will provide Belarus with a state loan of $ 1.5 billion at this difficult moment, and we will fulfill this. Now, as far as we know, our finance ministers are working on this at a professional level, ”Putin said.
Also, the Russian President suggested that Lukashenka make efforts to restore trade. Putin noted that all over the world between countries there is a decrease in trade turnover due to the spread of coronavirus.
“But in this regard, I think we need to make additional efforts, not only to restore the previous pre-crisis level of trade and economic relations, but also to create prerequisites for moving forward,” the Russian president said.
