The West has moved closer to the "last dictator of Europe"


President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko before the new year did not achieve concessions on oil supplies from Moscow. Now in Minsk they are looking for other suppliers. It lists a group of different countries from where oil can come to Belarus. Logistics routes are determined.


Alexander Lukashenko seeks oil for Belarusian refineries



Initially, it was a matter of obtaining raw materials for Belarusian oil refineries from the ports of Poland through the Druzhba pipeline. But the Poles politely replied: this line is not intended for reverse pumping of the product.

Now the eyes of the Belarusian authorities fell on the ports of the Baltic states. I must say that this direction has already been mastered quite well, but only for export deliveries of petroleum products from Belarus. The reception of crude oil from the Baltic states to the Mozyr and Novopolotsk refineries has yet to be mastered.

About ten years ago, Belarus already had experience in delivering oil not from Russia - through the Odessa-Brody Ukrainian pipeline. The experience, however, is unsuccessful. Then, as we recall, a dispute arose between Moscow and Minsk over oil duties.

Until 2010, Belarus received oil from Russia duty free. She processed it at her plants, partially used it for her own needs, and sold the rest (most) - for export. Moscow then reasoned that Belarus, without justification, was earning superprofits because of cheap Russian raw materials, and suggested that exempted oil would go only to the republic’s domestic consumption. Oil for export shipments will have to pay a fee, as all Russian companies do.

Alexander Lukashenko was indignant and decided to take oil in Venezuela from Hugo Chavez. It was not difficult to conclude such a deal. After a while, six million tons of Venezuelan oil poured into Belarusian refineries, which, taking into account the delivery, cost Belarusians almost twice as much as Russian. The deal was closed.

The West has moved closer to the "last dictator of Europe"


A new tension in relations between Minsk and Moscow arose last year due to the introduction by the Russian government of the so-called budget rule. In accordance with it, the fiscal burden is redistributed from export duties on mineral extraction tax. The price of oil at the well rises, at the border it falls. All Russian companies are moving to the new rule. The Belarusians did not like this situation, and they protested.

You can understand them. The oil refining industry gives the country 12-15% of industrial production and 20% of export revenue. In Minsk, it was estimated that the republic’s loss in the next 5-6 years due to the abolition of the previous oil benefit would amount to about $ 10 billion (for 2020, the entire budget of Belarus is $ 12,5 billion).

But Russia has nowhere to retreat. If Minsk leaves the previous preferences, then they get a significant competitive advantage over Russian oil companies. Amicably, the parties failed to agree. So the president of Belarus decided to follow the old disastrous option - to import oil from foreign suppliers.

All flags to visit?


Last week, the Prime Minister of Latvia, Krishyanis Karins, visited Minsk. At a meeting with President Lukashenko, they discussed the possibility of oil supplies to Belarus through Latvian ports. For the Latvian economy, loading ports is a sore point.

With the development of the Russian Ust-Luga, where the export of our companies is moving, the turnover of Latvian ports has fallen sharply. Now the Balts are looking for their happiness in Belarus. So Karins came to Lukashenko, who until recently was called "the last dictator of Europe." Commenting on his visit, the Latvian Prime Minister said that there is great potential for improving relations between countries at both the economic and political levels.

This is against the background of the fact that the Belarusian leader is now being invited to visit other EU countries, for which Lukashenko has been de facto "shaking hands" for many years.

And not only Europeans reached Minsk. In early January, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was to come to meet with Lukashenko. A missile attack on an American military base in Iraq prevented this trip. Pompeo announced that he had rescheduled his visit at a later time.

Lukashenko quickly felt “multi-vector” in Washington, and now they are trying to build their game on the contradictions between Moscow and Minsk. American emissaries frequented the capital of Belarus. Their rank is growing.

First, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent visited Minsk, then Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Wess Mitchell. After him, President of the United States National Security Advisor John Bolton met with President Lukashenko. Now Minsk is waiting for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

These meetings are covered rather sparingly, which gave room for commentators of various kinds to fantasies. We agreed to question the participation of Belarus in the Eurasian Economic Union (supposedly, Belarusians entered there solely because of favorable conditions for trade in petroleum products). Some went even further and did not rule out the strengthening of the partnership between Minsk and NATO.

So far these are idle inventions of a public far from power, but who knows how events in Belarus will develop further. After all, we already have a precedent when, in an interview with the Khabar news agency, Lukashenko called the Great Patriotic War “not our war”. It is difficult to explain these words of the leader of Belarus only with an insult to the oil, which is becoming more expensive for Belarusians. But for the West, such words of Alexander Lukashenko are a reason to come closer to realize their own goals and objectives.

      So with the latter? And, well, yes, with the "penultimate" are already close. “Freken Bock” flew in and “decided” everything.

      Exactly. He always considered Lukashenko the wiser of our modern politicians, but it is possible that he was mistaken. I think that he already bought a house in one of the regions of Russia bordering Belarus, at least for the youngest son with his mother

                  A simple example, my friend. During the Second World War, these same Chukchi, Evenks, Azerbaijanis, Caucasians sat with the Russians in the same trenches. A white-emigrant thoroughbred Russian trash collaborated with Hitler. And I have no doubt at all with a serious cut with the same Japan, the purebred Russian “allies” from Belarus will stay at home.

      And how to build them without banknotes?

      As a resident of the Republic of Belarus, I’ll tell you so - everything that happens is just obscurantism from all sides. Or rather, the absence of at least some well-established policy on the part of the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation. So you can, after two decades, clearly articulate what we are all going to? Well, except for the vague "union state"? Nobody knows or understands Nikert, even at the very top. What should this state be like? What should be common and what should not? What are the advantages of both states, etc.
      At the moment, I see the situation like this: “Well, we somehow somehow allied there - and okay! There was no war.” on the part of the Russian Federation, over the past ten years no steps have been taken in order to somehow put pressure on the AHL, to try to push through a more serious degree of integration and association. Trite endless graters about a common currency and those in the end have no result. And the AHL itself is simply happy to pull loans from two sides, and even the cunning-eyed Chinese climbed in third.

      And in the end, we came to a situation where all the unresolved problems that we all put off for later - took and gathered in one pile. And you can solve them, but quickly and painlessly it will not be. Our "ekanamists at boha" also awakened the business of those still: for the last three years, only those who had already been allocated 2 squares of land and a fence did not know about the "tax maneuver". And here, in 19 — such a direct surprise, it turns out that the “tax maneuver” is taking place in the Russian Federation. Here are those times! I’m already silent about the absolutely hellish castbacks from the purchase of the Russian Federation of blocks of shares in our factories ... The whole world is from each other everything that is not too lazy to buy and sell, and here we went on some sort of path, selling nothing to anyone at all ... And in the end, we will have a specifically lagging production, albeit ours. Yes, and without markets.

      To be honest, I don’t really see any way out of the situation without shocks for our economy. It’s just that they can be easier if your government gives some time for a buildup and does not immediately hit the world prices for us and cancel all the buns from oil. And they can be at the level of the same Ukraine, when the whole economy simply “plows” into the abyss and will be built from the bottom.

      And here, in principle, you can’t build a relationship without money. Simply, they can be either fraternal-monetary, as they were, or exclusively financial. But in the second case, they should be mutually beneficial, and our “ekanamizdy”, during the golden years, have not been able to build at least something adequate, so it is unlikely that any of this will come of it. The crisis was expected and it will not go anywhere. This year, if it blows, then next year it will explode. Or until next year there will be a clear understanding of whether we are going in one direction. Because "money for kisses" all over the world. It's time to really look at things, and this is a completely different and very sad story ...

        The kiss ends quickly when they start talking about money. In a crisis, Russia does not want to give money to the side without political compensation.

          Little to carefully study the background of the gas wars of the Russian Federation and Belarus?
          I can enlighten a bit.
          It all started in 1999, when they ratified the agreement on the union state, under this agreement the gas transmission system of the Republic of Belarus was included in the general system of Gazprom, and the Republic of Belarus should receive gas at domestic prices .. Then in 2004 the Russian Federation demanded the sale of the gas transmission system of the Republic of Belarus to Gazprom, Lukashenko refused, gas supplies were stopped for a day. And so every year. The Russian Federation demanded that the Republic of Belarus privatize the entire gas transportation system of the Republic of Belarus, Lukashenko refused. Demands to sell were at book value.
          The whole war is our oligarchs against RB give a pipe.

        hi Hah! So the Belarusians themselves do not care about all this. Absolutely apolitical over the years they began while Lukashenko built his corporation. Everyone is waiting for something. I saw recently how people inject in the field in the cold for 10 rubles (300 rubles) a day. And everything is fine.

          I correctly understand that in Russia every resident of the village is exclusively politically active, savvy in political intrigues as a political commissar in the GVHG, and in less than 100 conventional a day, he won’t get off the rostrum in order to work?
          Yes, Belarusians are extremely apolitical. And it’s not only apolitical, but, in general, initiative is bad. Only on the other hand, how do you imagine a different course of events? Do citizens agree to rallies demanding the sale of shares of the MZKT? Or how? Or rallies for and against integration and wall to wall?

              In this regard, there is such a moment. There is no arguing. Looking at the situation from the inside, I can only say that the majority of Belarusians do not see and do not want to see some unpleasant picture that is currently taking shape. In general, everything looks decent and beautiful, but here and there, seemingly insignificant facts come out, but if you think about it, then somewhere on the other side of the curtain is a completely different, different life. But while they are not impudently put on display, to all, in fact, no difference. That's all.

        There were many letters, but they could not catch the meaning. But this is a claim to himself. And the meaning of what is happening, for me, should be simplified. If Belarus is part of Russia, then all these stories about Russians who do not understand their happiness are just a whim jumping on the topic of a freebie, if Belarus is not an independent state, good luck in your search for a better share. Only without moaning that someone is to blame for your problems.

          It’s about the conversation that if you look at these very problems without moaning and an open mind, the most unpleasant question arises: what did all these people do, who talked to you and us from the screen about a certain “union state”? What specific points have they identified and which have been implemented? Why is there such a mountain of problems that could be solved gradually and not create a one-time crisis?

          And most importantly, there is no one to answer. For years gathered, discussed, talked about a happy, joint path to a brighter future, and as a result: "Well, I couldn’t, I couldn’t!" Now jump, don’t jump, but somehow you need to solve the situation. And in a situation of acute crisis, it is more difficult to think and find compromises. Everyone is on the platoon, ready to throw harsh words and blurt out the door with resentment. Crashing is always easy. But it’s difficult to build ... What once again we are all convinced.

            Something tells me that two parties are participating in the negotiations. And the blame for the lack of positive results may lie with both. And still, the starting point for all the agreements is the question: Does Belarus see itself as a province within Russia or an independent state? It seems that the answer to this question does not give our Belarusian friend. And getting the conditions of Smolensk region and an independent foreign policy, you know, the usual “dynamo”. And it seems Russia is tired of it.

    Priche, I’m not saying that don’t give money to Belarus. Just give - and call it right, and understand what exactly. And demand compliance with our interests. fully without deviations.
    When Belarus decides to give Russia money for maintenance, it will have the right to demand something in return.

    Alexander Lukashenko was indignant and decided to take oil in Venezuela from Hugo Chavez. It was not difficult to conclude such a deal. After a while, six million tons of Venezuelan oil poured into Belarusian refineries, which, taking into account the delivery, cost Belarusians almost twice as much as Russian. The deal was closed.
    Still little known facts. Lukashenko bought several wells from Ugo, knowing that his health wasn’t so good, he sold it, and he gave his soul to God. And the new president said, “I don’t know who I bought from - ask him that.” Then he agreed to barter with the new president, Belarusians are building a residential quarter for $ 200 million and continue to pump oil, but here something went wrong. As a result, Lukashenko was left without wells and built housing for free. Something like this.
