"I consider Sputnik as our common allied resource. And we want to position ourselves exactly this way and we formulate our editorial policy here, in Belarus, exactly this way," Kiselev said during a video conference dedicated to the 20th anniversary of strategic partnership between Moscow and Minsk.
He added that the aim of Sputnik was to report fair information about both Russia and the Union State of Russia and Belarus worldwide.
The Union State of Russia and Belarus is an international association of the two countries, which aims to ensure peaceful and democratic development of the common economic area, as well as to pursue coordinated foreign, social and security policies, according to the Belarusian Foreign MInistry.
