The Union State consists of a small Legislative Body, the State Council and Council of Ministers. The Chairman of the Presidium of the State Council is appointed by the Power Committee and is approved by the Council of Ministers. The Union State also has a formal General Secretary, who is the de facto head of the organization. the Union State is responsible for enforcing the Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Understanding and supervises the routes connecting the member states. Border Guards no longer exist at entry points within Member States, as the Governments are linked together and passports are issued by the "Union State". The Government does, however, have border guards surrounding the borders with Moldova, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Finland.
Many have called the Union State an attempt to revive the Soviet Union. There is belief that such decision could be made, but that it would merely be a confederatorial body to allow sovereignty to be preserved for the three republics.
The Ruble of Russia presently has the Belorussian Ruble pegged to it. It is expected that the Union Ruble will be issued in 2016. Ukraine is in the process of adopting this Ruble as its transitional government is expected to dissolve on September 19, 2015.
Kazakhstan is expected to be the fourth member of the Union State. On November 21, 2015, Kazakhstan announced it was reinstating Soviet authority (reportedly under threats of Russian Military Intervention) and began its crackdown on Democracy and Capitalism.
Other Former Soviet Republics have been under consideration but many have aligned with China and Turkey (who is aligned with NATO) and have detached themselves from Communism.
