Belarusian MPs to attend events to celebrate Day of Unity of Peoples of Belarus and Russia in Moscow

MINSK, 1 April (BelTA) - Belarusian MPs will travel to Moscow to participate in the events to celebrate the Day of Unity of the Peoples of Belarus and Russia and to attend one of the stages of the Rally of the Memory in tribute to the 70th anniversary of Victory, BelTA learned from the House of Representatives.

The Belarusian delegation will include deputy chairman of the House of Representatives Viktor Guminsky, chairman of the permanent commission for labor and social affairs of the House of Representatives Vladimir Vasilenko and deputy chairman of the permanent commission for legislation and state construction of the Council of the Republic Yevgeny Koreshkov. On 2 April they will attend a meeting and a concert.

In addition, the MPs will take part in the Rally of the Memory events. The campaign, which is being held by the CIS Inter-Parliamentary Assembly in the cities and places of military glory of the CIS States, kicked off in March in Minsk and will be held throughout the CIS.

The Day of Unity of the Peoples of Russia and Belarus is marked on 2 April. On this day in 1996, the Presidents of Russia and Belarus signed an agreement on founding the Community of Russia and Belarus, which heralded the creation of the Union State. For most Belarusians and Russians the Day of Unity represents the inviolability of the centuries-old brotherhood, the willingness of the peoples to build their lives and create the future together. The integration between the two states relies on a solid foundation of spiritual unity, common historical and human destiny, and mutual interest in further joint sustainable development. One of the major events uniting the peoples of Belarus and Russia is the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, the 70th anniversary of which is celebrated this year.
