Minsk announced its readiness to build a commercial port in Russia

Belarus, represented by its President Alexander Lukashenko, announced its readiness to build a joint seaport with Russia. The head of the Republic of Belarus announced these plans on Friday, September 25, during a conversation with the Governor of the Leningrad Region, Alexander Drozdenko.

The President of Belarus stressed the need to come to an agreement with Moscow on logistics and supply of goods, the main of which are tariffs for rail transportation and use of ports. And here the port of Ust-Luga in the Leningrad region will play an important role.

According to Lukashenko, he discussed these issues with his Russian counterpart. The President of Belarus suggested that Putin unite the efforts of both countries and build a trading port in the Leningrad Region - in his opinion, the funds saved on the construction of the Belarusian nuclear power plant can be allocated for this purpose.

Earlier, Lukashenko announced Minsk's readiness to move the transshipment points for its goods from the Baltic ports to the Russian ones in response to the non-recognition of the results of the presidential elections by Riga and Vilnius on August 9, 2020 in Belarus, during which Alexander Lukashenko won a landslide victory. According to the Belarusian leader, the Balts will feel for themselves what sanctions are and how they can affect tradeeconomic communication.

We will show them what sanctions are ... And for sanctioned products (on those products on which Russia has imposed an embargo) - even if they don't dream

- Lukashenka noted.

      In Crimea, it is not relevant for Belarus, but in the Kaliningrad region, it is the best to develop a port ... Then transit in Lithuania will be up to 250 km and in the Kaliningrad region to ports 170 km from the Belarusian border ... Transit in Lithuania will not be closed in peacetime, and at a special time, Kaliningrad is under siege and only through the ports of supply, which needs to be developed ...

    It doesn't matter by what methods, the main thing is to redirect cargo flows bypassing the Baltic States. It is necessary to show mercy and stop the agony of the Chukhon economy and finally weigh them on the neck of the EU. Tamed, the way is answered. This also applies to the Ukrainian border, and it is even more important. Tired of this mustachioed combinator, when the already blue fingers will finally fall off?
