Belarus wants to receive Russian gas at Smolensk region prices


On the eve of the meeting with his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev to discuss integration within the framework of a single state, the Prime Minister of Belarus Sergey Rumas announced that there were a number of uncoordinated issues.


One of such issues, according to the Belarusian official, is the issue of energy prices.

Speaking to reporters in parliament, the head of the Belarusian cabinet said that Minsk wants gas prices at the Smolensk region level plus gas transportation.

He stressed that integration provides for equal conditions for business entities, and to fulfill this condition, equal energy prices are needed.

The question of which year the price of the Smolensk region will be directly is a subject of negotiations.

- said Rumas.

The day after the Prime Minister’s talks (Saturday, December 7), a meeting of the heads of Russia and Belarus, Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko, will be held in Sochi.

It should be noted that the issue of gas prices today is not the only one that has remained unresolved in the negotiations between the parties. According to the same Rumas, he counted sixteen such issues.

Recall that according to the agreements reached earlier, the parties must determine how the price of gas for Belarus will be formed from January 1, 2020.

    Or maybe Lukashenko gas at a cost, as we have in Siberia? There is no gas from the word at all, we’re drowning with firewood and coal!

      In some places there is gas, but in general it’s time to accustom the Belarusians who have overgrown with coal to accustom, and in the future, to dung and saxaul.

        They have quite some peat. By the way, environmentally friendly fuel.

    In order to get gas at prices like in Smolensk, you need to live in Smolensk.

    That's when it becomes part of the Russian Federation, like the Smolensk region, then we'll talk, but not earlier.

    To sell natural resources outside the country at domestic prices is a crime! The price must necessarily include natural rent, which can be withdrawn ONLY by the owner. The people of Russia, the owner of natural resources, can receive them for their own needs without taking natural rent, but the people of Belarus do not. Chatter about equal prices - from illiteracy, ignorance of economic theory. By the way, Marx's theme of natural rent is well disclosed.

    Cheaper to feed an ally than to build a defensive line.

      I completely agree (and plus you from me for a reasonable "dazibao" in the style of Sun Tzu!)!
      But this is true only if an ally is really an ally, and not a "multi-vector" opportunist (with the habits of a potential traitor, who in full swing "signaling" his loyalty to the enemies of Russia ?!) ?!
      And then it will turn out, as with Ukraine - BLINDLY TRUSTED, subsidized-subsidized "fed-fed", also "multi-vector", sort of "allies" in the Ukrainian leadership (Deriban and obviously Russophobic kleptoligorkhat) and, bam, it turned out that fed up, fed "vile and aggressive Banderonazi" non-brothers "on their own heads ?!
      What happened MORE EXPENSIVE IN THE TOTAL, than if so, friendly-blindly, not at all "fed" ?!
      China, which many admire, never forgives its investments to anyone, and even furnishes them with such conditions that these investments with interest go straight to the Chinese economy, or even lead such countries to bondage from Beijing (ordinary Belarusians also know this and groan , since B. has already accumulated such Chinese "investment projects" ...!).

    Nowhere in the world does a single economic system imply the same prices. For example, let Lukashenko take a look at the European Union. Are there all countries with the same gas prices?
    Phrase

    integration provides for equal conditions for business entities, and to fulfill this condition, equal energy prices are needed.

    - false from start to finish.
    Equal energy prices, as well as salaries, pensions and other pluses and minuses are provided only in a single state, and not in a union of states.
  7. Let them come to Russia!

    Belarus is a real parasite! First recognize the Crimea as Russian, then we’ll squander ...

    In our state, which is led by Putin, there is no clear concept - a country's development strategy. Our state is concerned about the increase in the number of billionaires and the export of raw materials. Here Old Man and spins like a weather vane.
