Deputies of the State Duma spoke with the condemnation of “anti Russian rhetoric” of the official Minsk.

As Lenta.ru reports, on October, 6 the parliamentarians adopted a declaration “About the situation in the Russian-Belarusian relations”, in which they also spoke for the preservation of allied connections with the neighboring state.

“Deputies of the State Duma express their confidence that market political interests which began to prevail in the course of the election campaign that started in the Republic of Belarus should not lead to disruption of allied strategic relations between our countries or drive a wedge into a close union of two fraternal nations”, - it is said in the statement.

Press Secretary of the President of RF Natalya Timakova stated earlier that the relationship of the two countries reached a deadlock after Alyaksandr Lukashenka spoke with critic to the address of Russia. Timakova connected the conduct of Lukashenka with his willingness to “arrive at a new term on anti Russian subject” (the presidential elections are set for December, 19, 2010).
