Abstract. In the development of Russia-Belarus relations, which, on one hand, give an example of the most close cooperation between post-Soviet states, but, on the other hand, experience a stress condition at times, marked by public rhetoric of the both states' leaders, a definite uncertainty exists, not allowing for providing a clear answer to a question: will Russia and Belarus move on together or alongside of each other?
