Russia cuts oil supplies to Belarus: Minsk seeks alternatives


Recently сообщалосьas the Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko suggested Russia join Belarus, saying that Moscow was obliged to help Minsk after the Chernobyl disaster, and began to threaten oil reversal from Poland after it took the “one pipe”. And so, on January 3, 2020, they were informed from the Belneftekhim state concern that Russia had stopped supplying oil to Belarus. At the same time, two Belarusian oil refineries (refineries) are still operating, but their loading has been reduced to the minimum acceptable level.


It should be noted that Naftan OJSC and Mozyr Oil Refinery confirm the absence of contracts with Russian companies for the supply of raw materials from January 1, 2020. Of the enterprises, they confirmed that they are working "with a reduced load on the residual raw materials that was accumulated in December." We remind you that at the end of 2019, Moscow and Minsk could not agree among themselves on the price of oil.

Russian oil is not supplied. Refinery loading reduced to the minimum technologically permitted level

- says the communique of Belneftekhim.

The concern is busy working out contracts for the supply of oil in January, not only from Russia, but also from other (alternative - ed.) Sources

- promisingly specified in Belneftekhim.

At the same time, oil transit to Europe through the territory of Belarus via the Druzhba oil pipeline is carried out as usual. Moreover, there can be no complaints from the Belarusian side to the Russian Transneft, since it carries out pumping as part of applications from oil companies.

It should be added that Russian leader Vladimir Putin and President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko held two telephone conversations (December 30 and 31, 2019), which touched on oil and gas issues. Minsk wants to buy from Moscow about 20 billion cubic meters. m of gas and 24-25 million tons of oil. Before that, Lukashenko instructed Belarusian officials to work out the conditions for oil supplies to the country via alternative routes.

      One-sided love goes sideways for the Russian Federation .... our love "brothers" is regarded as our weakness, sycophancy and dementia ...
      Allocating in the 19th the current land of Belarus from Russia, the Bolsheviks did not even think that they were creating, albeit fraternal, but artificially new people ....
      Is it any wonder that the grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren of those people whom Russia excluded from its population, having thrown away like kittens, will despise or at best neutral attitude to the modern Russian Federation and its (former compatriots) people ...
      The same can be said about the inhabitants of New Russia, gifted together with their land to Ukraine by the same Bolsheviks in 20-22. last century....
      Russia now pays the bills of history ....

    began to threaten oil reversal from Poland

    Poles probably light candles every day for the leadership of the Russian Federation, for the opportunity to make money on our "brothers" ...

    Here, Old Man, it seems, did not receive grants from Soros, and he also arranged a holiday for his people, come on, fuel and lubricants in the Republic of Belarus long before the New Year began to rise in price ....

          I don’t know about the people, but the fact that the territories of the current Republic of Belarus and Ukraine previously belonged to the RI / RSFSR ... this is a historical fact ...

            And it would be worth knowing (at the expense of the people)! So, restore the Russian Empire and do not fool people with their heads, because you were mistaken about the RSFSR — the present RF is the RSFSR. Didn't you know that.

              And what were such peoples as the Ukrainians and Belarusians under RI?

              So, restore the Russian Empire and do not fool people

              I ask again, what are you smoking? Do you want to return 4 NATO countries to the Russian Federation? Or hot Finnish guys? All of Central Asia and the entire Caucasus?
              Here are grateful Georgian descendants, fattening during the Union, in the center of Tbilisi, a museum of "Soviet Occupation" was created .... and the "great" Ukrainians tell me that Crimea is their primordial territory ....
              Create RI with them yourself, without me and not at my expense ...

              the current Russian Federation is the RSFSR

              Please specify from what year the RSFSR is the Russian Federation, if the Bolsheviks separated Belarus, New Russia, Crimea from its composition in different years, created Kazakhstan from the lands of the RSFSR, name the year?

    Now the Shklofsky chairman of the collective farm will sit on dry rations for a month or two, they will bite his own. He wants to immediately eat a fish and haaaaaaaz for the price, as in the Smolensk region. Sasha, well, it doesn’t happen that way, or your gas and gas for a European price of $ 250, or you are welcome to 87 the governor and the sovereign for $ 126.
