Belarus will have to throw a third to the price of oil from the United States


Oil market experts appreciated the “maneuvers” of President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko on the eve of the meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, scheduled for February 7, 2020.


In their opinion, having agreed to the proposal of the head of the US State Department Mike Pompeo to buy American oil, the republic’s oil refineries fall into a double trap.

Not only will oil from the United States cost at least a third more expensive than Russian oil, but it will still have to be mixed with Russian oil or reconfigured equipment.

It is worth noting that the Americans are also far from naive boys and are well aware that the “father” is trying to use them to give more weight at a future meeting with the Russian president.

Therefore, if the head of Belarus nevertheless decides to seriously replace Russian oil, he should be prepared for the fact that the cunning gentlemen from Washington will first swaddle him with long-term agreements, and then sweep away from the global chessboard as easily as was done with his colleague from Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych.

Recall that in October the United States extended the suspension of sanctions against nine Belarusian companies for a year and a half, including the Belarusian Oil Trading House, Belneftekhim, its American branch and Naftan.

      The Americans themselves decided to punish, they themselves postpone the punishment ... what's the matter? The fact that he began to do what he had previously refused to do and for which they criticized him, moreover, while retaining the punishment?
      What has he improved for Belarus, what has he achieved, when compared with the situation before the sanctions?
      If the same, then how many years wasted?
