BiznesAlert: Belarus Joins Russia in Energy War with Ukraine


In early November, Russia stopped exporting thermal coal to Ukraine, unleashing what some experts believe is an energy war against Kiev. Now, according to the Polish resource BiznesAlert, Belarus has joined policy its eastern ally, stopping energy supplies to Ukraine.


According to the online edition Ukrainskaya Pravda, Belenergo was supposed to inform the Ukrainian side about the end of supplies and the non-renewal of the November contracts, but this was not done. The Energy Department of Belarus does not name the reasons for the termination of the transportation of energy resources to Ukraine.

Meanwhile, in early November, Minsk had already suspended electricity supplies due to the next disconnection of the Ostrovets nuclear power plant from the network after the security system was triggered. However, after a few days, electricity exports were restored.

Earlier, Kiev accused Moscow of starting an energy war, since the Russian side blocked the supply of Kazakh coal through the territory of Russia. According to the head of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Energy and Housing and Utilities, Andrei Gerus, the blocking of supplies is technically at the level of Russian Railways. At the same time, at the end of October, the Russian company Inter RAO canceled the auction for the sale of electricity, in which Ukrainian partners were supposed to take part.

    It was high time to do this, but dad kept hoping to sit on two chairs. But apparently his trousers in one place from such a sitting still could not stand it.

      Now, probably more in Belarusian.
      Recently, ours prefer to send diesel away. The prices are higher there.
      Nothing personal, just business.

      A fleet of Russian diesel-fueled tankers bound for the US East Coast could help drive down the highest retail fuel prices in seven years ...
      Four tankers with 2 million barrels of Russian diesel on board ...
      Diesel prices on the US East Coast jumped to their highest level since 2014, with distillate stocks in the region declining by about a third from earlier this year.

    What kind of auctions are held by Inter RAO, I have a feeling that at the suggestion of Ukraine, all the media are constantly circulating this cancellation of the auction. Maybe this auction was invented by Ukraine itself, but Russia simply did not come to it, as with the gas auction in the EU.

    It is confusingly written.
    What kind of energy carriers did Belarus sell and stop?
    Electricity - we have already described what and what goes separately.
    Fuel oil? Coal? Petrol? Gas?

      Everything is written normally.
      On November 6, the commercial import of electricity from Belarus began, which amounted to 415 MW * h.

        For a couple of weeks, electricity is being discussed separately, almost every day.

          The most shameful thing is that "Ukrainian Truth" is blatantly lying. On November 8, Belenergo warned Kiev that there would be no electricity soon.

            Exactly. We have been writing about electricity for a long time.
            Another thing is interesting. What energy carriers and how much Belarus and the Russian Federation sold there.

    Interesting is the other? The other is not interesting. Arrows, as usual, translate about something else, as usual, the main thing is to deviate from the topic? Stop powdering people's brains
