Head of the State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Relations with Compatriots Leonid Kalashnikov in an interview with Ura.ru allowedthat other countries that were previously part of the USSR can join the Union State created by Russia and Belarus in the future.
“In order for countries to join, this union must be attractive. So far, the union is famous for not very many, but still attractive qualities. This is the absence of a border, the ability to work, learn from each other without any permits, not translate a driver’s license into another language. If this attractiveness continues to grow, sooner or later a general parliament and laws will appear. All this will lead to the fact that others will join, ”the politician said.
According to the deputy, there are a number of issues that require discussion. He believes that the meeting of the Supreme State Council of the Union State, which will be held on November 4 in an online format, will be dedicated to the elaboration of this topic. The Presidents of Russia and Belarus Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko expect to approve a number of documents and programs aimed at implementing the provisions of the agreement on the creation of the Union State in the coming years.
Earlier it became known that at a meeting of the Supreme State Council of the Union State of Russia and Belarus, it is planned to approve an updated military doctrine. In addition to the doctrine, the presidents of the two countries must approve the concept of the migration policy of the Union State, as well as the document “Main directions for the implementation of the provisions of the Treaty on the Creation of the Union State for 2021-2023”, which includes 28 sectoral union programs.
