New tariffs for Russian oil transit through Belarus published

The Ministry of Antimonopoly Regulation and Trade (MART) of Belarus did not delay the increase in tariffs for oil transportation services via trunk pipelines in the republic.

As follows from the publication on the national legal portal of the republic, from February 1, 2020, the following tariffs will apply for oil transit services through the Gomeltransneft Druzhba trunk pipelines: the cost of transit is 1 net ton (without VAT) on the Unecha (High) route - Adamova Zastava ”- 365,37 Russian rubles, and“ Unecha (High) - Brody ”- 156,93 Russian rubles.

Thus, from today the “oil confrontation” of Russia and Belarus has reached a new level.

According to the forecasts of a number of experts, the oil refining industry of Belarus will experience difficulties in connection with the cessation of Russian oil supplies and the rather complicated logistics of oil supplies to the republic from Norway, which arrive by sea to the Klaipeda terminal, and from there it is delivered to the Belarusian oil refineries by rail.

Recall that the reason for the beginning of the conflict was the unwillingness of Belarus to buy Russian oil at world prices, since in this case the profit that the republic received from re-export and sale of refined products abroad was significantly reduced.

    It is necessary to impose a duty on all goods from Belarus. Stop playing with them. You look at Lukashenko - he is always not enough. Always throws tantrums .. Belarus did not support Russia in anything, just give them allies.

    This big lover of a freebie, Lukashenko, has already played too much, is used to getting everything almost for nothing and not reciprocating with Russia, some unequal friendship turns out to be not mutually beneficial, and can such relations be called friendship between our fraternal Slavic states.

    Putin: "Alexander Grigorievich, let's be friends!"
    Lukashenko: "Yes, I agree, but under one small condition, which will not matter to you"
