Opinion: Belarusian, Russian laws should be aligned with due regard to national interests

MINSK, 23 August (BelTA) – Legislations of Belarus and Russia should be harmonized as much as possible taking into consideration national interests, Deputy Chairperson of the Council of the Republic, head of the organizing committee of the 5th Forum of Regions of Belarus and Russia Marianna Shchetkina told reporters on 23 August, BelTA has learned.

She gave her take on the prospects of unifying Belarusian and Russian legislations. “Belarus and Russia are two different states. Each has its independent stance, sovereignty and national interests. Our task is to get closer as much as possible in order to give more opportunities to our citizens to implement their rights,” she underlined.

The number one objective of joint efforts is safeguarding equal rights of citizens and economic entities, as well as creating markets without exemptions and restrictions, promoting cooperation in digital economy, Marianna Shchetkina said.

The analysis of the legislations of the two countries and the implementation of the Belarus-Russia Union State Treaty is performed by the Union State Standing Committee. The harmonization of the legislations of Belarus and Russia will be discussed at the 5th Forum of Regions of Belarus and Russia that will take place in Mogilev on 11-12 October.
