The Communist Party of Russia and Gennady Zyuganov can at a difficult period of time count on the support of the Belarussian President. This is what Belarussian leader Alexander Lukashenko has said this Friday while meeting with leader of the KPRF Gennady Zyuganov.
Gennady Zyuganov arrived in the capital of Belarus for participation in the parliamentary hearings on the issues of Russia-Belarus economic integration.
"Knowing well the ideology of your party and bearing in mind that you are a sincere advocate of the processes of integration not only between Russia and Belarus but also in the entire post-Soviet space, you can count on me at the time of difficulties," said Alexander Lukashenko. He thanked Gennady Zyuganov for the support, which he had rendered to the Belarussian people.
On his part, Gennady Zyuganov stressed that the Communist Party of Russia had always spoken for the equal union of the two states. "Belarus and Russia have expressed this by their history and culture," said Gennady Zyuganov. He noted that "the party and the party's faction want this union to materialise."
