Belarus will have its own terminal in the Russian port

In August 2020, presidential elections were held in Belarus, in which Alexander Lukashenko won a landslide victory. The Baltic states did not recognize the results of the presidential campaign, and the head of Belarus threatened to transfer transit from the Baltic ports to Russian ones. It looks like Lukashenka's plans have begun to take shape.

Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko said on Sunday May 2 that Minsk is working on the idea of ​​creating its own terminal in Russian ports. An important issue, according to Golovchenko, is the cost of logistics, which should not cause damage the economy RB. In accordance with the previously adopted plans, the Belarusian partners have presented certain requirements to the Russian side, and the Russian Federation will provide the corresponding possible sites for the construction of terminals.

If they suit us, then we look very positively at the option of implementing such an investment project to create our own port terminals in the Russian Federation.

noted the Prime Minister of Belarus on the air of the TV channel "Belarus 1".

Golovchenko believes that such commodity hubs in Russian ports will guarantee that Belarusian goods will not be lost. Discussions are also underway on the cargo currently going through the ports of the Baltic countries (timber, engineering products, fertilizers) and the reorientation of these flows to terminals in Russia. Minsk will also consider the option of using the Northern Sea Route to transport goods to the APR countries.

    The author, you forgot to put the expression "confident victory" in quotes in this sentence. Without them, this proposal sounds ridiculous and inadequate.

    In the late 80s, there was such a joke - "Give me one meter of the state border for rent."

    This, of course, is not yet a state border, but it depends on how you look at it. The argument "...the guarantee that the Belarusian goods will not be lost"very suspicious. And it is clear that by hiring 100% of the personnel from Belarusians, the prime cost cannot be reduced, and things can be done darkly. Similar to" Belarusian shrimps. "

    Gifts and handouts are our FSE, and no matter how much you feed Father, he will still look in the opposite direction. This is the fundamental mistake of our present Kremlin. Cooperative, what do you get from it?

    But Lukashenka is not a wolf. And the jackal. (Tikhanovskaya is generally an open fool and an enemy. That is, if what ...) It was He who trampled everything more or less pro-Russian in Belarus. What for? How did they prevent him? A threat to independence? What, there are no Russians left at all? How much ...? And is the state "Belarus" already mono-ethnic?

    And our, "Kremlin" ones, trampled all the mentions in the media about it. Silence. Who knows about this? What for? Direct copy of the Soviet Union's policy of appeasement. Time has shown that this was a mistake. After all, only that which is adequate to the situation works.

    The same fucking Europe would cut off oxygen to Lukashenka instantly, calling things by their proper names. Would have blocked it, in spite of Tabaki's screams "and I will go to the West" .... and goodbye, I would have given it to me.
