President Vladimir Putin sent a message to Alexander Lukashenko congratulating him on Belarusian Independence Day

July 3, 2000

The message said, in part:

“This significant day for Belarus coincides with the glorious day of Belarus’ liberation from the Nazis.

“Our main challenge for today is the building of the Union State of Russia and Belarus. I am convinced that working together to achieve this goal will take Russian-Belarusian relations to a new level and create prerequisites for growing living standards and prosperity of the people of our fraternal nations.”
