Staunton, Nov. 3 – Leonid Kalashnikov, head of the Duma committee on CIS affairs and a deputy who often speaks for the Kremlin, says that after Russia and Belarus unite, other countries which were in the Soviet Union in the past can come together to “restore the USSR” (ura.news/news/1052514944).
For that to happen, the deputy continues, the union must be “attractive” as an option. At present, that is not the case for many, “but all the same, there are attractive features” in such a possibility, including “the lack of borders” and the possibilities of travelling, studying and working over a much larger area.
“If this attractiveness will grow further, then sooner or later will appear a common parliament and laws,” Kalashnikov says. And others, “above all the countries of the former USSR” but implicitly not only them alone will join the union Russia and Belarus are now forming.
