The President of Russia's Republic of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov and Crimea’s head Sergey Aksyonov have signed an agreement on cooperation including agreements on trade and economic, scientific and technical, social and cultural cooperation between the republics of Tatarstan and Crimea.
The agreements between the republics were signed during Aksyonov’s visit to Tatarstan on Saturday.
Another similar agreement was concluded between Tatarstan government and Bakhchisarai region of Crimea. It was signed by Tatarstan Industry and Trade Minister Ravil Zaripov and the head of Bakhchisarai region Igor Knyr.
Sergei Aksenov called Tatarstan president a real friend of Crimea.
“Today, we visited many interesting places. It is clear that the republic has a management and team that promote the region's and the Russian Federation's interests. There are plenty of projects which we agreed to carry out in the Crimean Republic,” he noted.
“I can surely say that Tatarstan is a reliable ally of the Crimean Republic,” Sergei Aksenov added.
The president noted that there were up-and-coming cooperation directions, including healthcare, innovative zones, heating utilities in the peninsula, It-technology and others.
“Crimea is an up-and-coming growth point of the Russian Federation,” Rustam Minnikhanov concluded.
Crimea seceded from Ukraine and was annexed by Russia in March.
