Lukashenko modernizes oil refineries in Belarus so as not to depend on Russia

President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said the need for speedy modernization of two major oil refineries in the country.




The head of the neighboring state decided in this way to respond to the statement of the Russian side that if Belarus closes the Druzhba pipeline for repair, Russia will be able to export oil through sea ports without problems. Prior to this statement, Minsk believed that by closing the Friendship Moscow could be intimidated and forced to abandon a number of measures taken against the supply of Belarusian products.

But the Russian side, showing firmness, showed Lukashenko that there was no reason to be afraid of him. And the president of Belarus was in a very difficult situation. Having become nervous, Lukashenko began to rant that Belarus could do without Russian oil products in general.

Of course, the president of the neighboring state was openly afraid to speak out against our country, but in his words about the modernization of oil refineries, there is clearly hidden implication.

Particular attention must be paid ... to the end ... of the modernization of two refineries. So that we don’t go with outstretched hands, don’t bow to anyone, but buy, like everyone else, oil on the world market, process it at home and get some profit,

- cite the words of the President of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko RIA News.

As you know, in Belarus there are two oil refineries. The first is the Mozyr oil refinery in the city of Mozyr, Gomel region. The second is the Naftan OJSC plant in the city of Novopolotsk, Vitebsk Region (Novopolotsk Oil Refinery).

Both enterprises were built in the Soviet era (Mozyr Oil Refinery - in 1975, Novopolotsk Oil Refinery - in 1963) and now need to be brought into line with modern requirements and requirements.

    What makes Lukashenko tease a rich neighbor? Feeling inferior? After all, you can live peacefully, modestly, not be impudent - and you will get what you need. Well, it’s funny and disgusting to observe arrogance and rudeness.

      This is possible only when you no longer believe in the wealth of a neighbor - from the word at all. Think about it. Beloussia is not Crimea and Donbass, but a territory with a much larger population, plus a direct overland route to Moscow (Napoleon and Hitler were not fools).

        Do not tell me what those who tried to get to Moscow on a direct overland path ended up with? And on the bill, “believe, don’t believe,” let Papa’s Colin try to find those who want to date his collective farm called “Belarus”.

          what did those who tried

          They ended badly not because they were fools, but because of the heroism and sacrifice of our people.

        Do not believe or blackmail? These are very different concepts. Where is he going to take oil? In the West? Bulgaria also wanted a lot. And what happened? About the road to Moscow, recall the words of Alexander Nevsky? So to put it mildly, your characters were not entirely smart.

          The characters are not mine, and fools do not become supreme commanders.

            Remind about what and who is discussed in the article? Do not imagine too much about yourself, as if it is about you.

              I received a notification from the site that someone commented on my comment, so I answered you, that's all. Perhaps there was some kind of technical failure - if you notice, the site has been modernized. I think I have something about myself or not (I have the right), it has nothing to do with it.

                I’m deep to the light bulb, lantern, don’t give a damn about who or what is wrinkling. For some reason, the opponent ignored the main question: what and who is discussed in the article? But I asked just about that. Naturally not about the opponent, who for some reason decided that about him, and with tenacity tries to get around this question, not answering him, but clinging to various tricks.

        plus a direct overland route to Moscow (Napoleon and Hitler were not fools).

        They were not fools, yes. But how did it all end? The Germans in any case remember. What about the French? There is a monument on Borodino field. There is an inscription on it: "554000 people invaded Russia, 79000 left." And then the Russians entered Paris in 1814, as in Berlin in 1945. The Germans then remember how they stood in the open Berlin in Russian kitchens with night pots for undercooked pearl barley.

    Oh, at what price are you going to buy it, so that you also get profit?

    I do not quite understand the logic of Lukashenko.
    You can buy oil on the world market. But already without discounts, at exchange prices.
    Close the oil pipeline, but how will oil get to Belarus? Is there an alternative oil pipeline or marine terminal for receiving tankers?
    If you do not buy oil from Russia, then how to supply Ukrainian tanks in the Donbass?
    On all sides, plus for Russia. And Belarus will not have to give oil cheaply and the dillies will stand.
    So, Old Man is on the right track. Flag in hand and wind in hunchback.

      True if there are workarounds. But Hitler considered communism an existential threat to National Socialism (which is generally true and this is clearly illustrated by the Soviet film “Ordinary Fascism”) and did not see any workarounds. In addition, the land route to India (the British colony and the main source of its economic well-being) lay through the USSR. In your words, Hitler thought about himself a lot and swung too broadly (being inspired by the successes of 1936-1940 and not listening to his generals) mistakenly considering the USSR a colossus on clay feet and forgetting that our people had been trying to "crush" for a thousand years with conquerors of all kinds, and could not.
