“Over the 11 months of 2022, the Russian-Tajik trade turnover grew by almost 35% compared to the same period in 2021 and exceeded the $1.5 billion mark,” he said in an interview with TASS.

Korenkov also stressed that this is a record volume in the history of trade and economic relations between the two countries.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the trade turnover of the CIS countries by the end of the year could reach $100 billion.
