Russia refused to compensate Belarus for rising oil prices

Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin voiced Russia's position on Belarus’s claims to compensate for the losses it suffered as a result of the Russian “tax maneuver”.




In the interview RIA News" the diplomat stated that the “tax maneuver” is the sovereign right of Russia, and therefore it’s simply incorrect to talk about any compensation to the Belarusian side.

According to him, we can only talk about possible assistance to Minsk in overcoming the consequences of the Russian "tax maneuver".

He noted that the issue of possible assistance is being worked out and will be resolved comprehensively, but now it is premature to give him any assessments.

As a result of Russia's tax maneuver, Belarus lost the opportunity to earn extra profits on the resale of oil and oil products to third countries, and first of all, to Ukraine.

Depriving such an opportunity immediately showed how Belarusian economy depended on the money received from the resale of Russian oil and oil products.

Recall that the Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in January of this year expressed his readiness to support the economy of Belarus with loans, but the issue of compensation was not considered.

      Far from considering his statements, as a proposal for the real integration of the two countries under the leadership of the State Council, as a solution to the problem - 2024 (transit of power to the Russian Federation).
      This also includes Volodin’s proposal to coordinate the composition of the Cabinet with the State Duma (if we consider the option of transit of power through another "castling" - so that the President of the Russian Federation could not easily dismiss the Prime Minister without coordination with the State Duma).
      In the Russian Federation, various options are being considered - the environment understands that no one is eternal, and the "vertical" must maintain stability.

        The President of the Russian Federation should not be a nominal person as, for example, in Germany. Does Russia need it? The head of state, according to the Constitution, should be elected by the people, and not at a get-together in the State Duma.

    Well, judging by the hysteria of the allegedly Belarusian present here, the phrase is very accurate.

      Well, not so right away.
      It has been obvious to us in Belarus since the mid-90s.
      But there are enough enlightened Russians every year since then. It's pretty funny to watch. drinks

    At his last meeting with GDP, Comrade Lukashenko stated that

    There is no plagiarism in his speeches, since he and Putin even think alike!

    But from this article it is clear that the "Old Man" was wrong ...

    Selling natural resources at domestic prices to another country is a bad thing. And even a crime, because non-residents at the same time appropriate natural rent, which, by definition, belongs only to the owner, in this case, Russia. It's time to stop.

      Throw you your "edrosovsky fables." Do you know how much oil and gas belongs to Russia and to whom exactly in this country? So, do not shake the registries and do not scare us with the facts of sales and shareholder payments for the year.
      For Schroeder, they do not feel sorry for anything, for Sechin everything is permissible for them, but here it is necessary - they cleared ...
      Then the power in the Kremlin should shut its mouth and not scream about good neighborliness and development of the union state.
      Everything is clear here - how can Belarusians live happily ever after, when all the oil and gas belongs to Russia, where 99% of everything belongs to one and a half percent of the population ...
      You still remember about the public heritage, thanks to which the children of Russia are waiting for good sms-messages.

        I recommend refreshing the knowledge of economic theory on Capital by K. Marx. I highly recommend it, because without this you will not be able to understand anything in modern economic relations - do not even try!

          And additionally find in the textbook section

          Forms of withdrawal of natural rent.

          - Understand the essence of the "tax maneuver."

          This is about the Russians, and Ukrainians have nothing to do with it, they made their choice. So, without Belarusians, you can’t run away from the Urals, and who will lick something?

    Belarus receives almost 14 million tons of oil at intravenous prices in Russia in excess of its consumption and resells it abroad at world prices. Consider what margin they received if the average difference is $ 20 per barrel and each ton is 6,5 barrels. 20 * 6,5 * 14 million = 2,6 billion dollars. This amount is about 5% of the GDP of Belarus. Or 20% of the state budget of the Republic of Belarus.
