Lukashenko told the details of a frank conversation with Putin


During a trip to the pulp and cardboard mill (CCC) in Svetlogorsk, Gomel region, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko spoke about the details of the conversation in Sochi with Vladimir Putin.


In particular, the head of Belarus retold the dialogue that took place between the presidents during the negotiations:

Putin asks: “Sasha, why will you buy more?” I say: “So that on December 31 every year you don’t kneel in front of you” - “Well, who is it?” - "I am standing. It should not be, and it will not be so. ”


According to the Belarusian leader, he is ready to buy American, Saudi, Azerbaijani, Venezuelan oil, if only on December 31 every year he does not kneel before the President of Russia.

During a speech to the Central Control Commission workers, Alexander Lukashenko also stated that the republic was ready to buy oil at world prices, however, in this case, it would not pay a premium to Russian oil companies.


According to political scientists, despite such harsh statements by Lukashenko, the divergence of positions between Belarus and Russia is a normal negotiation process, and the presidents of the two countries have long resolved all issues.

Experts suggest that during the meeting in Sochi, the head of Belarus voiced some demands of the Russian elites that do not suit the Belarusian side, but this will not fundamentally change anything in relations between Moscow and Minsk.

    The basic requirements of the so-called "Russian elites" boil down to the demand for the privatization of Belarusian enterprises and their sale to foreign shareholders, as was done in Russia.

      As I understand it - these are your assumptions? Or do you have information directly from the participants in the conversation? smile

        I comment on the assumption of experts set forth in the article under discussion.

        The desire to privatize Belarusian enterprises has been repeatedly formulated by "Russian elites".

          So, still a personal opinion. I just thought maybe there was some other information. hi Under the vague definition of "some requirements", anything can be hidden. And the desire to privatize is quite natural, but Father also somehow expressed a desire to get "his" wells. Everyone thinks about their own “selfish” interests, but I don’t remember the demands of the Russian elite to “sell enterprises to foreign shareholders. Quite a strange demand. Is the Russian“ elite ”so disinterested?

              requirements of the so-called "Russian elites" are reduced to the demand for the privatization of Belarusian enterprises and their sale to foreign shareholders

              Of the 11 members of the board of directors, 7 do not have Russian citizenship.
              39% of the shares do not belong to the Russian Federation, respectively, we do not receive profit and taxes from this.

              As for the shares, do you propose to exclude all foreigners from the number of shareholders? And it didn’t occur to you that they can invest in companies, provide technology, or promote sales of products.
              In my opinion, you are idealizing the "socialist" economy of Belarus. Investments and new technologies are needed to develop enterprises. For example, you can look at regular mail (today I caught my eye by accident). This is how it looks in Belarus:



              They load, get, consider, weigh, scan, shift and so on ... in three shifts. sad
              This is how mail works in Russia:



              And so in all sectors. If you do not invest in technology, then do everything manually, stupidly with a shovel. And it’s simply impossible to develop all technologies, all the more so in such a small country as Belarus.
              In the end, they have invested money in the company, and they have the right to receive a part of the profit, and you want to simply "throw" them. yes
              With regard to taxes, do not beat rubbish, it squeals too loudly. First look at the taxation procedure, value added tax, mineral extraction tax, export duties. How can this be affected by the presence of foreigners in the directors? belay In your opinion, there is only income tax and everyone pays it at home, depending on citizenship? wassat
              I won’t even talk about Rusal; it has nothing to do with Belarus at all.

              As for oil, the conflict did not arise between the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation, but between the Republic of Belarus and oil companies headed by foreign citizens.

              That's why he is a "maneuver".

              And why not between the world government and the last bastion of socialism? winked Taxes from the supplied oil will go to the budget of the Russian Federation, and not to the oil industry. The agreements with the Union State were actually "scammed" by Lukashenka, he made a mess himself, for 25 years "compassing" his brains, but when it came to the point, the "main ally" turned out to be ... smile

                They try for themselves, but "They" are not Russian the elite. For them, Russia is a place of earning money and nothing more, and Belarusian enterprises are a tasty morsel, which, as they assume, can be "squeezed out".

                As for taxes - read what taxes and where "residents" and "non-residents" pay.

                  With all due respect, hi , the links you cited to Lukashenko have nothing to do. request Do the list of boards of directors of Rosneft and Rusal testify to Lukashenka's "constant and vigilant" concern for state interests? belay
                  Sorry, of course, but this is simply not serious. No. Moreover, what does Rusal have to do with Belarus? request Let’s try to go from the other side, so to speak, the proof is on the contrary. Lukashenko is a scoundrel who is interested in nothing but personal power and money. For more than 25 years, he has sabotaged the process of creating the Union State, by the way, which he initiated. For him, this is just a way to receive subsidies. I wonder what links you provide to refute this statement. sad

                  They are trying for themselves, but "They" are not the Russian elite. For them, Russia is a place of earning money and nothing more, and Belarusian enterprises are a tasty morsel, which, as they assume, can be "squeezed out".

                  But Lukashenko is all so disinterested and is trying exclusively for the working people? Do not make me laugh. laughing The only difference between them, here is a "pack" of shareholders, there he is alone and does not let anyone near the trough.

                  As for taxes - read what taxes and where "residents" and "non-residents" pay.

                  Rosneft is one of the largest taxpayers in the country. As for individuals (if you are interested in the shareholders themselves) taxes are paid regardless of whether you are a resident or not. Look, read, enlighten on health, you can art. 224 of the Tax Code to open.



                  When selling shares, tax is also levied:

                      Do you think Poroshenko is an exception? There, if I am not mistaken, Bakiyev lives, our "disinterested" Yanukovych warms his bones .. Pay attention to the rhetoric and actions of Lukashenko, he is becoming more and more like Poroshenko. Let's wait for the start of oil withdrawal from the pipeline and its purchase according to the "Ukrainian scheme"? The elections confirm, only Lukashenka's position and course are different now. Let's look at the results of the following.

                      By the way, who, besides Lukashenka, did you mean when you wrote "everyone"?

                      This is the basis of entrepreneurship, or, if you want, business, everyone is trying for himself. And Lukashenko is actually the largest entrepreneur in Belarus, the public sector makes up about 70% of the economy, and he actually manages it manually. It is not up to the president to go to the cowsheds and to appoint and remove directors of enterprises. He is obliged to stand above these economic issues and carry out general strategic leadership.

                      Those. essentially nothing to say? You do not have the facts.
                      Your argument resembles English in the Skripaly and ukro-Dutch in Boeing.

                      I think my comments didn’t bother to read? In my opinion, I have clearly described both foreign investors and taxation. Phrase:

                      Exactly. Do you have facts that contradict this statement?

                      under this description. Just a statement that needs to be refuted by facts. smile This is exactly in the style you described. yes
                      All your argumentation is based on the presence of foreign citizens in the composition of directors and that’s all .... further only a stormy fantasy.

                        Those. after all, care about the public sector, and not about personal profits. Lukashenka is a leader, not an owner. Your accusation of "selfish" interests is dropped. You have confusion about definitions. "Selfish" interest involves personal interest without taking into account the interests of others, for example. those that have delegated authority or those that depend or trust.

                        Who will determine where Lukashenko’s private ends and the state begins? He has long been a comrade of the Saahs. smile

                        This is not a charge, but a definition of behavior. And in whose interests is Lukashenko acting now? He defends the right to leave a personal seat on the presidential chair and nothing more.

                        Even entrepreneurs are not all "skins", many are socially oriented.

                        Do you think Sechin is socially oriented or is he still trying to squeeze out and sell the Belarusian economy to foreign partners? I suppose they are negotiating now, they are negotiating commercial, they are discussing the price ... Sechin, the head of the company, is selling oil, and Lukashenko is buying. What is the president doing in these negotiations? I would like clarity.



                        You have charged Lukashenka with "selfishness" and a desire for personal gain. It is up to you to prove the accusation. The facts. What enterprises does he own, accounts abroad, etc.?

                        About skinning, see paragraph 1, as for personal gain, he disposes of all state property alone. He owns the entire public sector, he even agrees on the price of oil. As for proving how you provide the facts, everything that was said about Sechin, about actions in the interests of foreign partners and about tax evasion, we will return to this conversation. yes

    - No, well, what am I ...- again, or something, to post my old comment on this topic ...- It’s just that evil is already missing ... -one and the same ...
    - yes please .. - here he is:

    gorenina91 (Irina) December 8, 2019 13:38
    On the way to integration: Russia and Belarus managed to bring oil and gas positions closer
    - No matter how Lukashenko is (good or bad) .. but he holds his oligarchs in a fist and controls them ... -they don’t dare to speak against Lukashenko ...
    - But in Russia it is the other way around ...- oligarchs rule Putin ...
    - Here .., for example ... - steal trillions of rubles in any of the oligarchs in Belarus (with large state fraud ... - a scam with nano technologies, etc.) .., or plunder such a state facility as Vostochny Cosmodrome ... - These criminals would have been in prison for a long time (or maybe they were shot) ...
    - And in Russia you can commit monstrous state crimes; inflict tremendous damage on the state and ... and ... and ... and after that continue to hold responsible government posts, as if nothing had happened ... - Our oligarchs are stronger than our guarantor (the guarantor himself is an oligarch) ... - they dictate their criminal wills to him and feel completely safe ...
    - And Lukashenka ... is the "last of the Mohicans" who can punish oligarchs himself and keep them in a tight rein ...

    - And what will happen if Russia and Belarus unite ??? - Well, for Russia, in fact ... - not much will change ... - But for Belarus everything will be different ..:
    1. Immediately in Belarus, all enterprises, factories and factories are closed down ...- and all workers are driven out into the street ..;
    2. All agriculture in Belarus will suffer the same fate ...- collective farms, large joint agricultural enterprises (meat, dairy and vegetable production) will simply go broke ..;
    3. The rather mobile and professional army of Belarus will simply be disbanded and the entire officers will be out of work ..;
    4. The entire education system (schools, institutes, military schools, etc.) will undergo tremendous changes ...- most teachers will simply lose their jobs ...;
    5. The health care system will slide to the lowest level ... -Most children. gardens just shut up and lose their functions ..;
    6. Across the country (Belarus), a general redistribution of property will begin ...- All enterprises for pennies will be sold in private hands; and many citizens will lose their jobs and their homes and replenish the army of Russian homeless people and the unemployed ...
    - You can still list a lot ... -And you can just say in a nutshell ... -In Belarus, the same thing will happen that today has a place to be in Russia ....
    - Today, Belarus, though, is begging and constantly begging from Russia for benefits and loans .. but ... but ... but ... but there are enterprises, schools, kindergartens; its agriculture, defense industry, design bureau, etc.
    - But what will remain there and will be .. if .......

    - I can add to this

    Putin asks: “Sasha, why will you buy more?” I say: “So that on December 31 every year you don’t kneel in front of you” - “Well, who is it?” - "I am standing. It should not be, and it will not be so. ”

    - And as Lukashenko wanted ... - in a different way it just won’t work out:
    - He will again kneel before Putin.
    - And our guarantor will kneel in front of his oligarchs ... - Only this way and otherwise ... - there's nothing to be done ... - Alas ...
