    Sputnik Radio in Belarus is a "common allied resource" of both Minsk and Moscow, Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency Director General Dmitry Kiselev said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Earlier in the day, Rossiya Segodnya and Sputnik Radio opened a multimedia press center in the Belarusian capital of Minsk.

    "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.

    Sputnik is a news agency and radio network with multimedia news hubs in dozens of countries. Sputnik broadcasts through its websites in over 30 languages, as well as analog and digital radio, mobile apps and social media. Sputnik newswires, available by subscription, run around the clock in English, Arabic, Spanish and Chinese.
