The arrival of the leaders of the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union and the self-proclaimed president of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko in Moscow may testify to the Kremlin’s plan to build a scheme to bypass sanctions.
The American Institute for the Study of War analyzed their meeting with the president of the aggressor country of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin May 25. He writes about it site ISW.
Putin, Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan and the President of Kazakhstan Kasym-Zhomart Tokayev called for the further development of EAEU relations with third countries. Including negotiations on free trade agreements with the UAE, India, Egypt, Indonesia, Israel and Iran.
Tokayev offered to help the Russian Federation launch the Chelyabinsk-Bolashak-Iran high-speed freight railway with a length of 2,873 km.

Putin also called on EASE countries to create technological alliances with third countries, “presumably to provide critical components that Russia is trying to produce or buy on its own,” ISW writes.
He also proposed to increase the number of new enterprises under the trade mark “made in the EAEU”.
Analysts assume that this is how Putin wants to “rebrand” Russian products and present them as products of the Union in order to avoid Western sanctions on exports.
