Belarus has twisted the knife into Moscow as the ruble continues to plummet.
“Minsk has demanded payment for future transactions in dollars or euros rather than rubles, according to state media agency Belta. ”
Belarus blocked online stores and news websites Sunday, in an apparent attempt to stop a run on banks and shops as people rushed to secure their savings.
“”The defense ministers of Kazakhstan and Belarus have approved a plan of cooperation for the next year.
The document defines the further steps to enhance cooperation in military and military-technical spheres, as well as in education and training areas.
Imangali Tasmagambetov and Andrei Ravkov believe in the need to strengthen cooperation in the defense sector.”
