The Program of Cultural Cooperation for 2017-2021 signed today by the Ministries of Culture of Ukraine and Belarus increases opportunities for the implementation of joint projects, as stated by President Petro Poroshenko.
“We have lots of common interests and projects. Our cooperation is extremely efficient, useful and mutually beneficial,” the Head of State emphasized. According to him, the leaders of Ukraine and Belarus have a political will and persistent desire to implement these interests for the sake of prosperity of the two peoples and strengthening of independence of the two countries.
“Today, I have once again been reassured by you, Mr. President, that the territory of friendly Belarus would never be used for aggressive actions against Ukraine and the Ukrainian-Belarusian border would never be a border of war,” the Head of State said.
President Petro Poroshenko is having a meeting with President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko who is on an official visit to Ukraine. At the beginning of the meeting in “vis-a-vis” format, the Head of State noted that following today’s negotiations, the parties will elaborate new formats, guidelines and the”roadmap” that will allow to enhance cooperation between Ukraine and Belarus.
“If a person saved heat, part of these funds must be allocated to this person. This is called monetization. And not just allocate funds for the person to buy anything, but to improve energy consumption in the future,” the Head of State noted.
