The Kremlin commented on Lukashenko’s idea to take Russian oil from a pipe

The Russian leadership rejected harsh criticism of the President of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, who said that if Russian oil was not delivered in the required volumes in February, Minsk would begin selection from a transit pipe.

During a conversation with reporters, the presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the dialogue with Minsk will continue on the basis of the agreements reached during the negotiations in Sochi.

Russian media quoted the spokesman as saying:

The dialogue will continue, especially since it was said that, in fact, contacts would continue between Belarusian colleagues, and so on, directly with oil supply companies. Actually, the heads of state decided that at the level of cabinets, cabinet members who oversee issues of bilateral integration, they will now work on the topic of energy supplies.

At the same time, Dmitry Peskov refused to comment on a number of emotional statements of the Belarusian leader:

I will refrain from commenting. There sometimes, indeed, let’s say, emotions take over. While in Sochi, the two presidents reached a certain understanding, and we will proceed from this.

Thus, the Kremlin has once again demonstrated its restraint and unwillingness to give occasion for further statements by the Belarusian president.

    It’s even somehow strange that there are crowds of friends with Belarus forever, a common team, are few. They usually crowd each other nicely with their likes. lol

    He said that the dialogue with Minsk will continue on the basis of the agreements reached during the negotiations in Sochi.

    laughing In general, everything is clear ... it, of course, does not toss bags. laughing It is Lukashenko’s breakdown after the SHUKANA of cheap oil, a residual phenomenon, so to speak. Oh. If Grygorich does not qualify for a couple of years, God forgive me. There will be the SHUKANA cheap oil part, who remembers which one. In general, everything is as always. Stable normal.

      It’s not their friends, the Belarusians themselves, they like it more, it has something to discuss. And the friends remained in the recent past, the Russian people are beginning to see clearly.

    The evil one was tilted, tilted, then bent, bent, and finally put on cancer. Well now, with cancer and crawling towards Russia, you look, maybe they will give oil, just don’t bend over, otherwise you won’t get anything.
