Oil is moving, but not yet received.
After some time, having begun to recover from the “tiring” holidays, Belneftekhim reported that on the afternoon of May 4, 2019, pure Russian oil was delivered to the Mozyr linear production and dispatch station.

On May 5, 2019, oil shipment began at the Mozyr Oil Refinery for refining, this information was confirmed in Minsk. Processing of raw materials will begin on May 6, 2019. Now Belarus can not worry.
