The Balts have prepared a response to the transfer of Belarusian transit to Russia


Political the situation in Belarus, most likely, will finally quarrel between Lithuania and Latvia. Vilnius staked on the removal of President Lukashenko, but lost, and now Riga, which has taken a more moderate position, intends to profit from the “sister”.


In a sense, Lithuania can be understood: Belarus is building its nuclear power plant just 50 kilometers from Vilnius. Modern nuclear power plants meet all safety and environmental requirements, which is confirmed by independent IAEA experts, but many people have a subconscious fear of a repeat of "Chernobyl" or "Fukushima". The Lithuanian authorities skillfully play on these phobias, preventing their population from relaxing, prophylactically distributing iodine pills and other symbols of a radiation disaster. Vilnius basically refused to buy Belarusian electricity and tried to achieve the same from its neighbors in the European Union, but they take a coherent position. Apparently, Latvia intends to connect itself to the BelNPP and start earning by reselling electricity to Lithuanians.

In general, a large “atomic cat” has already run between the “Baltic sisters”. It is not surprising that Vilnius clung to the "President Sveta" so much in the hope that the pro-Western leader will stop the construction of the Belarusian nuclear power plant. It didn't work out. Alexander Lukashenko remained in power and is now preparing to fulfill the threat to teach a less than zealous Lithuania a lesson. Thus, the Lithuanian transport company LTG Cargo will lose a long-term contract for railway transportation with the Belarusian Oil Company. Following it, transit from Belaruskali, which accounts for about 30% of cargo transshipment volumes in Klaipeda, may go to the Russian port of Ust-Luga. For economics This is a very sensitive blow to a small republic, but Lithuania is proudly ready to pay such a high price for “the rights of a Belarusian person,” said Ausrine Armonaite, Lithuanian Minister of Economy:

Any sanctions - be it Belarus, Russia or Iran, any country in the world - have economic consequences. But they are not introduced in vain - in order for us to protect human rights.

Well, we are looking forward to when Vilnius will impose sanctions on the United States, where an outright coup is currently taking place and the rights of Donald Trump's supporters are grossly violated, largest social networks. Go ahead, Lithuania, and be consistent in your beliefs and actions!

Meanwhile, the neighboring Baltic country continues to build bridges with Minsk in order to intercept the Belarusian transit going to Russia from the Lithuanians. The Latvian Minister of Transport stated:

Latvia is interested in the fact that goods from Belarus in the direction of Northern Europe go through Latvia ... We are working on this and have not given up anything.

It is curious how exactly Riga wants to take away the Belarusian cargo traffic from Russia. A proposal is being made to appeal to the EU so that Brussels will introduce the so-called "environmental duty" on Russia. The point is that the railway route through our country is longer than through the Baltic states, therefore, during Russian transit, more hydrocarbon fuel will be burned, which means that carbon dioxide emissions will increase. Latvia clearly wants to get into this fashionable "ecological stream", having set European bureaucrats against Moscow.

I must say that Riga and Brussels can really do something to Russia, but this will hardly lead to the Kremlin's refusal of the Belarusian cargo traffic. The costs of our budget will just grow again.

    for Brussels to impose a so-called "environmental duty" on Russia.

    Excuse me for the curiosity, how would this technically look? Lukashenka sells goods to Europe, and European officials come to Putin and say give me money?

        And it will give

        Will it take away? Will it overstrain?
        If they plan to impose levies on Lukashenka, what kind of "environmental duty on Russia" are we talking about?

    The costs of our budget will just grow again.

    A tax on raw materials will be introduced, which means that prices for raw materials will be raised automatically. In the end, the Europeans will blame for everything. In general, there are not so many large raw material suppliers in the world as you might think. Raw materials will always be in price!

    All bullshit. If you throw out the pathos, then the stump is clear, Riga too (like Lukashenka) wants to fight for the millionaires. Will not get in your pocket.

    And "A proposal is being made" - who is this? Anonymous on social networks? A neighbor's janitor? Or even the "Latvian Minister of Transport"?

      All bullshit. cool style, borrow.
      And from the context it is not clear that it is not a janitor? Or is it considered normal - to pull out phrases from the text and mock? And where did you see the pathos at all?

        - rather anonymous from social networks.

    Can I feel sorry for the electricity ?!

    from Belarus through Ust-Luga further by 300 km. How much CO2 emissions at the CHPP will increase - trifles per ton of cargo. In addition, Belarus will say that the entire road is powered by the new BelNPP and, accordingly, emissions are generally zero, and when traveling through the Baltic states, the nuclear power plant cannot be used. So it is not yet known where the emissions are greater

      Oh, but you can for fun. I communicate with a bank worker in Riga. After I introduced myself to the operator from where in English, the answer and the conversation were in pure Russian. At the end of the conversation, we discussed the weather, I'm all so politically correct, something like about two languages ​​and cultures at the same time.
      And I didn't guess, the compliment didn't go ... sad

    A stupid and outdated article ?! Firstly, Russia should not forget about transit to Kaliningrad, but it is only possible through Lithuania .... To drag everything by sea is more expensive than through Poland !!! Secondly, Lukashenka is a notorious usurper, blackmailer and just a brute; who not only does not care about other people's interests, but also about his own people ?? !! If we push aside a little of our national patriots, then we, too, are sliding after him to a far from enlightened authoritarianism, and possibly to a dictatorship ?? !! To the succession of power from Putin, many Cerberus are drooling .... And looking at Russian history, this is very possible, because the electoral process in our country was worse than the Americans !!! Our nomenklatura nobility has taken a lot of will for itself !!!

    Have arranged a nuclear dump from all over Europe at the Ignalina nuclear power plant (now defunct) and want something ?!
