Uninteresting integration: why the Eurasian Union ignoring the media
According to him, Moscow accuses Washington and Western countries in creating the “uncompetitive advantage”, although it itself creates such conditions for Minsk.
“We have to work in those conditions, which exist today”, — said the President of Belarus, adding that the situation will be the topic of his conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin. In conversation with staff, Lukashenka called them “two to three years to withstand”, as the country will be under pressure from competitors.
“We’re pinned down, unfortunately, to the East of our elder brother, who behaves in unfair competition,” — said the Belarusian leader. “They “Rostselmash” your support, subsidize,” he said, calling the situation unfair and incorrect and noting that it is a violation of agreements in the framework of the Eurasian economic Union.
The Eurasian economic Commission declined to comment on RBC statement Lukashenko. RBC has requested comment by the official representative of the MFA of Russia Maria Zakharova.
In June, the Belarusian President asserted the importance of removing barriers in trade relations with Russia, then he also mentioned the work of the EEU.
Then Lukashenko said that the decision of many important questions not just transferred “from one integration to another format, for example on the platform of the Eurasian economic Union”. “I don’t think we should continue to do because we in our Union are able to solve the issues that exist,” — said Lukashenko at the meeting of the Supreme state Council of the Union state.
In may last year, Prime Minister of Belarus Andrei Kobyakov urged to stop the “unhealthy competition between Gomselmash and the “Rostselmash”. He noted that the parties can sit down at the negotiating table and to agree “who does what, who has what I do best”.
