Gazprom withdrew almost all money from Belarus


Belarusian elections become the largest political crisis for Belarus over the past 26 years. Perhaps foreseeing the politicaleconomic problems in Minsk, the Russian "Gazprom" withdrew almost all its money from Belarus - more precisely, from its subsidiary "Belgazprombank".


In total, the Russian gas giant transferred 15 billion local rubles from its Belarusian subsidiary. At the beginning of this year, Belgazprombank had 15,6 billion Belarusian rubles (about $ 210 million) of Gazprom. The Russian concern also withdrew other assets from the bank - at the end of the year their volume was about 2,5 billion Belarusian rubles, by the end of the first half of 2020 they decreased to 20 million.

On June 14, the State Control Committee of the Republic of Belarus initiated a search and inspection at the central office of Belgazprombank in Minsk. About 4 million dollars were withdrawn in cash, more than 500 thousand dollars - in securities, as well as one and a half hundred paintings from the bank's corporate collection worth more than 20 million dollars. 15 managers of Belgazprombank were detained on suspicion of organizing a criminal community and withdrawing money abroad.

Former head of the Belarusian bank Viktor Babariko had previously wanted to run for president of the Republic of Belarus, but on June 18 he was detained and later sent to the KGB pre-trial detention center of Belarus.

    And how is all this to be understood?
    A quite obvious conclusion suggests itself - will Belarus be "merged"?
    Or some part of the so-called. elites to make their plans? What kind?

      You just need to understand this. Lukashenka took the bank, appointed his head, spread his mustache, smiled and said - we are waiting for additional capitalization ... In response, they waved a torch over his face and took out all the money. That's the whole drain.

        You may be only partly right. Based on the personal interests of a narrow political stratum. Lukashenka does not want to be a vassal of anyone. With this approach, what kind of a Union State can we talk about?

          You are joking? belay The bank was taken away from the company, it had to send money to him there - on, dear Alexander Grigorievich, use it and do not deny yourself anything. So what? By the way, when exactly the money was withdrawn is not specified. The output was reported something like this:

          In the first half of 2020, the Russian gas monopoly Gazprom withdrew almost all of its funds from Belarus. This follows from the company's IFRS reporting. The Belarusian portal drew attention to it TYT.by.

          TYT.by, that is, the opposition reports how disgusting Gazprom is withdrawing money. Note that the first half of the year ended 3 months ago. Why is this being reported, right now you are not interested?
          If interested, the numbers are on page 43 of the report.

          https://www.gazprom.ru/f/posts/05/118974/gazprom-ifrs-2q2020-ru.pdf

          Lukashenka does not want to be a vassal of anyone.

          Well, he doesn’t want to, the problem is that he wants Gazprom to pay for all this.

          With this approach, what kind of Union State can we talk about?

          Absolutely correct remark. yes How you can talk about something with this scoundrel is not clear.

            You masterfully turn the meaning of any words. And most likely you will turn these words of mine too. I will answer briefly.
            With that "feudal" approach that Gazprom is leading - what kind of cooperation can we talk about?

              Let's try not to turn it over, but to figure it out. What is the "feudal nature" of Gazprom's approach?

                Personally, I have no complaints about Gazprom. You need to understand not this, but the system itself. It suffers from chronic "feudal fragmentation" and this hinders the building of any relations, including the Union States.
                Don't you find?

                        Stop turning on the "fool". You perfectly understand everything.
                        The entire current system (of big business) is built on the private property of individual investors (usually called oligarchs), including state participation. The system in Belarus is more like the Soviet one. From this, the difficulties that we are talking about arise. With all Lukashenka's desire, he cannot accept some of the proposals of our businessmen, just as they do not accept the proposals of the leaders of Belarus. After all, this will break the model itself.

                        Not the entire system is built on private property; there are state corporations. In Belarus, by the way, it is also far from socialism. Their state owns about 75% of the economy, we have about 50%.

                        From this, the difficulties that we are talking about arise.

                        Difficulties arise rather from the difference in goals. Lukashenka wants to live separately, all he needs from Russia is money, a sales market and cheap energy resources.

                        With all Lukashenka's desire, he cannot accept some of the proposals of our businessmen, just as they do not accept the proposals of the leaders of Belarus. After all, this will break the model itself.

                        Well, he doesn't want to, he doesn't want to. It is not clear why Russia or Gazprom should pay for all this?

                        Do not exaggerate when you say that Russia or Gazprom pays for everything. Moreover, Lukashenko defends the state interests of his country, while Gazprom defends corporate interests.

                        Do not exaggerate when you say that Russia or Gazprom pays for everything.

                        If you are talking about "Belarus freeloaders", then I did not mean it, moreover, I don’t think so and didn’t say, but subsidies in various forms are present and this is a fact. We are talking about a specific situation, Gazprom is not Belorussky, he does not care about the interests of another state, as well as Gazprom’s interests of Belarus. Why should Gazprom compromise its financial interests? Moreover, the interests of Belarus, as Lukashenka understands them, contradict those of Russia. It is not worth making him a statesman who stands guard over socialism.
                        1) He was offered to reorient cargo traffic to Ust-Luga, he refused. Multi-vector. The fact that the entire Baltic region is pursuing an anti-Russian policy and the Russians there are second-class people, he does not care.
                        2) Crimea, Abkhazia and South Ossetia he did not recognize for economic reasons, as he could fall under sanctions.
                        3) That the Nazis are in power in Ukraine - he also does not care, he rubs against everyone. He doesn't care about the residents of Donbass. Most importantly, what you can trade. This is the economy again.
                        Lukashenko is a mercantile unprincipled type. Can you name one reason why Russia should treat him differently?

                        I will not speak out on all your arguments, especially since I agree with you on some of them. I will answer the very last sentence.
                        This is the main reason why

                        Russia should treat him differently.

                        - is the fact that if this is not done, then Russia will remain practically in splendid isolation in the western direction.
                        Of course, you can try to identify and support the pro-Russian leaders, but these will be "vassals" ready only to carry out orders from the Kremlin. And this is already bad for Belarus itself and its economy. Consequently, Russian interests will eventually begin to suffer from economic decline in Belarus itself.

                        By supporting him, Russia will also remain in splendid isolation.
                        He does exactly the same thing as all the presidents of Ukraine, the only difference is that he is sitting for a long time. The entire opposition was grown with his permission, the same red-white flag after the change to red-green was practically banned in the first years, then it was allowed, Radio Liberty and others work there, Russian television is not allowed, everything pro-Russian on the political field has been cleaned up.
                        Now he has reached approximately the level of Yanukovych.

                        Of course, you can try to identify and support the pro-Russian leaders, but these will be "vassals" ready only to carry out orders from the Kremlin. And this is already bad for Belarus itself and its economy. Consequently, Russian interests will eventually begin to suffer from economic decline in Belarus itself.

                        There are none there. He retained the title of "Russia's only friend". As soon as such forces emerge, they will be cleaned out.
                        Vassals, then? Well, then there is another option, a new multi-vector, which will do the same thing as Lukashenka, gradually dividing our countries. He, too, will need only his own lot.
                        You are exaggerating the state of the Belarusian economy. Over the past few years, Lukashenka has been taking loans to refinance debt. That is, a loan to give another loan, more precisely, the interest on it. Like taking out a mortgage and paying only interest, the debt itself does not decrease. In the West, he can no longer take a loan. Now about half of his debts are Russian. There will be more, and then they will say how in the USSR we help and forgive everyone. The situation is exactly the same. What are Russia's economic interests? Moreover, we artificially support competitors. Belarusian goods are coming to us, it is not so easy for Russian ones to break into the Belarusian market.

    Or completely dishonest Gazprom violated the laws of Belarus and wanted to grab as much dough as possible and make money on crises.

    But father miscalculated here too. He only grabbed cash, and all accounts were transferred to Russia, that is, to the one who owned them. And now he is at a broken trough, however, he has already asked for help from the GDP and he promised, because now all of Belarus needs to be rescued.
