From words to action: an oil tanker from the USA for Belarus began shipping fuel


The first tanker with US oil for Belarus arrived at the port of Klaipeda (Lithuania). Currently, the vessel is under unloading, after which 77 thousand tons of Bakken crude oil will go by rail to the Novopolotsk Refinery.


This was announced on June 6, 2020 RIA News" Press Secretary of the Belneftekhim State Concern Alexander Tishchenko. According to him, the ship arrived in Klaipeda at 23:00 on June 5, 2020, after which it immediately became unloaded.

Tishchenko added that in 2020 this is the 12th oil supply for Belarus with the help of tankers. He explained that these are supplies alternative to Russian and their total volume has already exceeded 1 million tons of oil.

Before that, Tishchenko said that Belarus wants to derive maximum benefit from diversification of supplies. Therefore, it will buy oil not only from Russia, but also from Azerbaijan, Norway, Saudi Arabia and the USA.

We remind you that in mid-May 2020, the US State Department call the timing of the start of US oil supplies to Belarus. Then it was said that the first delivery should take place in early June. It was clarified that these are competitive deliveries, which will be supported by the American company Getko and the Polish concern UNIMOT.

Now partners from Belarus, Poland and the United States have moved from words to deeds. After all, Minsk, Washington and Warsaw hope that with such supplies they will be able to “strengthen the sovereignty and independence of Belarus”, protecting them from Moscow’s influence.

    The article has a lot of letters and zero content. Add the author a few words "bought at a price ...... per barrel", and it would make sense. And here is not an article, but an old joke on a medical topic: "... guess at the tailbone."

    Totally agree with you. After all, it is not clear what the output price of this oil will be, what benefit will be (if at all), to whom the products from this oil will be sold. Nothing is clear, but most likely they will feed them inside the country!

    Oh, naive. For starters, let them tell you what sovereignty and especially independence is. The whole economy is tied to Russia in the Republic of Belarus, about 90 percent is mainly selling products. No, well, if the Republic of Belarus will send its goods to these countries, then good luck.
