The United States announced its readiness to 100% replace Russian oil in Belarus


It was necessary to be too naive to believe that the visit of the head of the US State Department to Belarus during the refusal of the republic’s leadership to purchase Russian oil would be limited only by an exchange of politeness and talk about diplomatic relations.


After meeting with President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, the head of the US Foreign Ministry said that American producers are ready to supply Belarus with 100 percent oil at competitive prices.

According to Pompeo, the actions of the United States are solely determined by the desire to help the republic become an independent state, and therefore, Minsk just needs to turn to Washington to get oil at competitive prices and in an amount that fully covers the needs of Belarus.

According to analysts, American oil will in any case be more expensive than Russian, but the Americans may provide for a discount in exchange for some concessions or services from Minsk.

At the same time, realizing that Lukashenko’s talk about US oil purchases could be just part of his manipulations, which should force Moscow to make concessions, the Americans will agree only if it comes to long-term contracts.

Currently, experts are refraining from forecasts regarding the further development of events.

    Lukashenko walks on very thin ice, flirting with the Americans. Looks like a thirst for profit overshadows the mind, the experience of Yanukovych does not teach anything.

    Just imagine that you are the president of Belarus. And you receive such information from Russia:
    1. Russia issued a loan of 4,8% of Belarus for the construction of nuclear power plants. And Vietnam and Armenia 2,75%. WHY???
    2. At what% does Russia keep its $ 200 billion in the US? 0,75% !!!!!! And in Belarus at 9%!
    3. And how Europe and the United States - "Western enemies" and China provide loans to Belarus? 2% !!!!! That's when Lukashenka instructed the government to immediately return the money, up to the gold and foreign exchange reserve.
    4. Russia receives from Belarus only in% - $ 1 billion a YEAR !!!! And from the United States for 200! For $ 200 billion - $ 10 million per year !!!!

    Due to the sanctions imposed by Russia, Belarus closed 11 dairy enterprises and 13 partially, and 7 meat processing plants.

    I can see from these figures that the best ally of Russia is the United States, and the worst enemy that needs to be destroyed economically is BELARUS. Your actions, if you think that Lukashenko is wrong?

      Just imagine that you are the president of Belarus. And you receive such information from Russia:

      What does it mean - comes from Russia? He himself does not own such information and only now found out?

      1. Russia issued a loan of 4,8% of Belarus for the construction of nuclear power plants. And Vietnam and Armenia 2,75%. WHY???

      Similar figures were voiced by Lukashenka, I'm not sure that this is a reliable source of information. I found information that Armenia was given 200 million at 3% for the purchase of weapons. Is it news for you that the sale of weapons in the CSTO is carried out on preferential terms? Vietnam planned the construction of the Ninh Thuan-1 NPP, for which a loan of 8 billion was provided. The agreement was signed in 2011, Vietnam changed its mind about building the plant, no loan was issued. If you know about another loan, share information, there will be something to discuss, but it's just a chat. Belarus has agreed on 10 billion for a period of 25 years (used about 3 billion). It is incorrect to compare 200 million for the purchase of weapons and 10 billion for a commercial project, especially since Russia itself does not issue dollars.

      2. At what% does Russia keep its $ 200 billion in the US? 0,75% !!!!!! And in Belarus at 9%!

      It is not clear what you mean? If securities, then, firstly, on what conditions they are placed on the market, they get such a percentage. What could be the claim? Let But father issue 0,75%, who is against it? Secondly, data on 200 billion are not true.

      3. And how Europe and the United States - "Western enemies" and China provide loans to Belarus? 2% !!!!!

      I don’t know how much loans the United States and China give, by definition, Russia cannot issue a loan in the currency of another country, it does not issue it in order to give such a loan, first you need to buy this currency. Do you want to subsidize? Do not like the conditions, you can try to get a loan in rubles, but I doubt that there will be 2%.

      That's when Lukashenko instructed the government to immediately return the money, right up to the gold and foreign exchange reserve.

      Where to return from? From Russia? Well, returned - so what? His right, what is there to discuss?

      4. Russia receives from Belarus only in% - $ 1 billion a YEAR !!!! And from the United States for 200! For $ 200 billion - $ 10 million per year !!!!

      Again, you compare warm with soft. As I understand it, you mean that Belarus pays interest on loans? Well, how much they scored and paid, it's just math. As for the United States, there is a placement in securities, firstly, I repeat, 200 billion - the amount is wrong, secondly, it is a necessary measure, these funds are needed to ensure international trade, and, as you know, it is mainly carried out in dollars , but not in Belarusian rubles.
      PS As you have deigned to express below, “there were no people willing to be in Lukashenka’s shoes,” let him be in his own skin, don’t like it, retirement is a wonderful way out for him. He put himself in this position. Also, what kind of surrender are you talking about? Do you think this is a war? And there is always a way out, you can sign all the documents and continue integration into the Union State. If this option does not suit you, you can seriously engage in the economy of your country, and not just walk around the cowshed and be smart. The economy of Belarus is uncompetitive, there is no way without reforms. For example, compare the production of sugar, in Russia the industry is being modernized, production has grown.



      Russia has enough of its sugar, its needs are completely closed, some are exported. In Belarus, sales fell by half, as a reaction - sugar factory directors were arrested.

      https://www.interfax.ru/world/693047

      Here is such a market approach ... There is unconfirmed information that these directors tried to get out, bought cheaper Russian sugar, packaged it in packages and sold under the guise of a Belarusian one. Here is such an economic miracle .... Instead of modernizing the industry, handcuffs. And are you campaigning for it?

    How many rope do not curl, and the end will be. So in the case of the ally, it turns out. But better now than later. American HR managers do not recommend being friends with business people because, choosing between friendship and benefit, they are likely to choose the benefit.

    I am very interested in the cost of this oil. Belarus can buy something, but it must be brought. Tanker to Minsk will not work, pour into buckets in the Baltic states? So they can make an environmental tax ... Of course, you can quickly construct a pipeline from Alaska through plus ... But again, pay for transit to the Baltic states.

    So I assumed. Having such figures, no one was willing to be in the skin of Lukashenko, and besides surrendering to Russia, no one can offer anything. Or education is enough only for rudeness and hatred?

      I don’t know, colleague, what can be suggested in this situation, but you are not friends with the digital word at all. Yesterday I wrote you a comment about the Russian 200 billion in the minke whale economy, but the message was deleted. There were 2019 billion Russian there in June 10,6, and the maximum was about 177 billion, so you wrote a little in an arc. I will not repeat the comment, but it’s a little more objective to be useful for the mood! drinks

    What forecasts can be under the rule of Father But ?! In my opinion, he himself does not know what he will say or do the next moment!
