Fuel crisis awaits Ukraine after break with Belarus

Possible economic the rupture and sanctions that Kiev is going to impose on Minsk because of the arrest of the former editor-in-chief of the telegram channel Nexta Roman Protasevich, could hit Ukraine itself. This point of view was expressed on the air of Channel 4 by Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, former governor of Lugansk and Transcarpathian regions, Gennady Moskal.

Ukraine is largely dependent on the supply of oil products from neighboring Belarus - the latter satisfies up to a third of the fuel needs of Ukrainians. Thus, economic conflicts and sanctions restrictions from Kiev will turn against Ukrainian consumers.

We are economically dependent on Belarus, primarily with regard to fuel - as for gasoline, as for diesel fuel

- said Moskal.

In this regard, the politician recalled the interruptions in the supply of fuel that befell the country after the imposition of sanctions on Viktor Medvedchuk's core businesses. After that, gasoline prices increased, and the authorities were forced to introduce state regulation, despite the prohibition of such measures, provided for by the documents on the association of Ukraine and the European Union.

According to Moskal, Mozyr, Novopolotsk and other Belarusian oil refineries supply up to a third of the quality and inexpensive fuel that Ukraine needs. Thus, after a possible freeze of economic relations with Belarusians, Ukrainians will face a very serious fuel crisis.

        It means that Azerbaijan is just a mediator. Sold by a Russian company. Moreover, diesel fuel. Will it all go entirely to the national economy?
        And yes, you can say about the profit. Not even 300%, but at least 10%

    In vain they are waiting for this crisis, it is already there, but they will not recognize it without a forelock. It should be a real Ukrainian crisis, not just anyone. Such that they would switch to gas vehicles with logs, as in those years when the Germans and Banderas were brothers, not only in terms of their worldview, but had each other and themselves.
