An alternative to Russian oil: Minsk is not appeasing, Kiev helps

An alternative to Russian oil: Minsk is not appeasing, Kiev helps

Despite reaching the first agreements aimed at resolving the conflict situation with the supply of Russian energy to Belarus, Minsk does not want to abandon the game of diversification of raw material flows for its own refineries, the profitable work of which is one of the main pillars of the state budget.


As expected, there are more than enough people who want to help in this undertaking. So, the head of its public relations department Ibrahim Akhmetov recently announced readiness to cooperate with Belarus on the oil issue of the state energy company of Azerbaijan SOCAR. However, as it turned out, at the moment we are talking only about one tanker consignment of 80 thousand tons for Belneftekhim, which will be shipped from the port of Supsa. When, while it is not known ...

At the same time, OAO Gomeltransneft Druzhba announced that they were preparing to establish supplies of Azerbaijani oil to the Mozyr oil refinery through the Ukrainian Odessa-Brody pipeline. This information is also confirmed by the deputy head of the Belneftekhim concern Vladimir Sizov, who states that the import of oil (without specifying which one) into the country through the pipeline mentioned above will begin literally in March this year.

For obvious reasons, neither Mr. Sizov, nor any of his colleagues are spreading about the estimated price of their expected supplies in comparison with the cost of energy that Russia offers Minsk. They are also stubbornly silent about the reliability and stability of new flows of “black gold” from various alternative sources. As practice shows, the difference between Russian and any other oil supplied to Belarus by one route or another is at least $ 100 per tonne - naturally, in favor of raw materials from the Russian Federation.

It is extremely unlikely that Baku or Kiev would suddenly decide to do charity work in favor of Alexander Grigoryevich - even if they ardently desire to move Russia to the Belarusian market. This is clearly seen in this example: not so long ago, announcing the intention to “significantly increase passenger traffic” with Ukraine, the first deputy head of the passenger service of the Belarusian Railways, Alexander Drozh, lamented that Ukraine, apparently, was not very interested in this one. The Belarusian side has to beg its representatives to launch more trains. There is no doubt that they will try to squeeze the maximum out of oil transportation there, without any discounts on good neighborly relations.

It is not known how long the attempts of the official Minsk to show character will last. Attempts to convince yourself first of all that Belarus can easily do without Russian oil should be considered as a stubborn denial of a completely obvious fact: Lukashenko lost the next energy war unleashed by him. For the first time in his tenure. This is quite obvious if only from the fact that he agreed to compensation for "dirty oil" in the amount of $ 61 million and no longer tries to stutter about the initially announced much larger amounts. No Ukrainian, Azerbaijani, Norwegian, Lithuanian or other volumes of supplies to Belarusian refineries are capable of leading Belarus to economic success due to its not only meagerness, but also its high cost.

    Belarus does not want Russian oil, even if it buys it, but the fact that any independence has a price is what everyone and pan Lukashenko and the people of Belarus should understand, and this is not only a monetary issue.

      Independence, in any case, in matters relating to energy resources, is possible only if there is a state on the territory of the state that wants to have sovereignty in this matter and reserves of these same resources. In the absence of such resources, sovereignty is limited by the ability to choose who to depend on in this matter. Well, let this cunning-tram-pam-pam-ragul Lukashenko choose. In fact, in psychology, this situation is described as "frustration." I really want to be sovereign, but Nyama magchymasts

        It is, but pan Lukashenko decided that he is smarter than everyone and is able to play on contradictions ... "torture", trying to be a "bridge" between the West and Russia. Ukraine did not succeed ...

            USA, Great Britain, Turkey doubled the purchase of oil in Russia ... Why? Some are from Venezuela, someone has problems with Iran and other former colonies. Why does Turkey not increase oil purchases in Azerbaijan, but buy in Russia? Azerbaijan reduced oil production over the past year .... And then Belarus decided to take Azerbaijani oil ... will the Azerbaijanis joyfully refuse the Turks? wassat Answer - Ukraine does not use all the oil and wants to use the unused dad ... For me, this is the master master ..

            By the way, the United States now exports the most oil ... And they are not squeamish and are not afraid to get hooked on this needle ..... and yet- They use their own oil from ours - otherwise the US oil refineries cannot work - they are imprisoned for Venezuelan + its own ( USA) light oil ....

        Oil, oil, gas .. And a hundred times. Or maybe the country should not live alone with oil and gas? We sat on this needle in the 70s of the last century. In the end, what happened to the country? Of course, there are many reasons, but we continue to depend on energy prices.

          I have a slightly different view on this issue ... well, what's wrong with getting more benefits from energy trade? America has a very conservative view on this issue - "if a product is in demand, it must be sold." increase oil and gas production ... and even went even further and added - "and if our price is uncompetitive, we need to strangle competitors." The danger for us is that we must not allow the budget to be critically dependent on these revenues.

              their goal is to strangle everyone ... and us, and China, and the EU (so as not to open their mouths), and Arabs ... but we, of course, are very vulnerable ... Russia is practically isolated and even in this situation we are still struggling. .. others won "hands uphill." In general, I wonder how much longer we can hold out? the country is literally strangled and until the country surrenders, but for how long will there be enough strength and patience. not the right people to make friends ... no . I believe that in the face of such pressure, a repressive domestic policy is needed, as under Stalin, and we have some kind of left turn ... nonsense.

          Energy, this is not just a commodity, it is strategic. And in any case, Lukashenko will now try to get some oil from other sources. For a strategic product (raw material), for the often great importance, it is not even the price, but the uninterrupted supply. Because lack of supply can completely stop the entire economy. And deliveries from one source, with periodic ones: we will agree, we will not agree, there will be deliveries, they will not. Such games do not suit anyone. Europe itself, after repeated gas wars between the Russian Federation and Ukraine, did not think much and figure out who, as a result, was the reason for supply disruptions. Gas must be supplied in any way; this is a strategic commodity. And so, spitting on costs, invested in LNG terminals. And now we can butted as much as we like with Ukraine and prove anything to each other. Europe diversified its sources and ultimately reduced the price of gas and secured its supply.
          Well, RB acts according to the same logic. For the same reason, the USSR, even being in a state with the West, did not turn pipelines in different directions with a valve. Deliveries went smoothly. The USSR understood this and found a compromise in advance, therefore, such conflicts did not arise. And in our recent history, pipelines are a series of endless scandals and wars. And traditionally for the New Year holidays. hi

            that Ukraine, that Belarus would be strategically correct, wouldn’t lose ... do not swear with Russia, but be a strategic partner for Russia. they decided to play sovereignty ... and in their sick imagination, sovereignty looks like this: given my geopolitical position, I will trade loyalty ... you will give gas at such a price that we can provide a free and decent profit, so you can call us " brothers, "you won’t, so now we are in NATO ... joint exercises ... or what kind of base we’ll stir up. and unaware of them wretched that it is prostitution, not sovereignty.

                I don’t even know what to answer ... in my opinion, everything is obvious. neither Belarus nor Ukraine in modern realities are able to ensure their sovereignty ... and therefore they will certainly be used with only one purpose - to weaken Russia. in the current realities, this is the only thing that can attract Western “partners” in them, and this is the carrot that is kept in front of them so that they cheerfully move away from a strategically, but generally vital, alliance with Russia. Saying "vital" I mean all three states ... so if cho ... so that questions about the context do not arise.

                    neither Belarus nor Ukraine in modern realities are able to ensure their sovereignty
                    - my answer.
                    this is the context. here I explain what I meant when I wrote about "play in sovereignty"
                    These are their problems. They are recognized by the UN.

                    - Ukraine is no longer a state, but Belarus still maintains statehood, but as soon as it slides into Russophobia ... and it doesn’t slide down ... it starts to fall apart ... - this is the law of nature when a part of a single nation begins to build its identity on hatred and renunciation of its origins and despising the unity of blood.

          Any economy needs energy at low prices, regardless of their origin. Very simple, but not accessible to everyone. They are trying to deceive geography. By the way, there was information that Kolomoisky pumped technological oil from the Odessa-Brody pipeline, so it needs to be replenished with something. Ukraine will not do this at its own expense.

        Here I read about his “Wishlist” and realized that under the “union” state, Mr. Lukashenko meant that independent Belarus (he didn’t even think of uniting) would simply sit on the balance of the Russian Federation. T. E, we give them money and resources, and we ... and we are invaders ...
        He has an interesting “concept” of a union state ... some kind of occupation. Even the United States, milking the whole world, is somehow veiledly explaining, like, in the name of democracy. And here it’s straightforward. Give us what to eat or go to ....
        Still an interesting character

      So then it is. But only then Grigorich does not need to scream about such a fucking Russia. And its independence should not be strengthened by spitting in Russia.

          No, it will not die and there’s nowhere to disintegrate, it’s just that at first production will gradually degrade, the standard of living will drop and you will come to what, I don’t even dare say. This will be in the event of a break with Russia. And if the stripes fit in, the bulk will eke out a miserable existence, and the top will be chic, as indeed everywhere in capstrana. But the social network will collapse is 100%. And even this is not the main thing, the main thing is you will betray yourself, as now the Ukrainians betrayed their grandfathers, refusing to celebrate Victory Day.

              Bend without Russia or not-let them decide for themselves, try. Russia needs a tougher policy in relation to its neighbors: if they need something, let them beg and pay. It’s more profitable to sell oil to non-CIS countries, which means no for Belarus. Protect your manufacturers - do not let the milk out. And so in everything.

              "Betrayal of their ancestors" is a rejection of the Russian World. In addition, natural resources are the property of the state. But Belarus can buy hydrocarbons anywhere, even in spite of itself.

              Victor, no one bred peoples. Especially with Belarus, especially given the huge number of mixed families. The question is different. I will try to express my opinion to you. A bit of history. In 1991, events occurred, as a result of which three separate states appeared - the Russian Federation, Belarus and Ukraine (I speak only about them). In each state, changes have occurred, for example, a new state symbolism has appeared: Flags, coats of arms and hymns. Someone that you yourself understand. In Belarus, on a wave of imaginary nationalism, a flag with white-red-white stripes appeared, the “Pursuit” coat of arms and the anthem no longer remember which one. Naturally, the language is Belarusian. Badak in everything. But after the election of Luke, a referendum was held in 1995, according to which the Belarusian society determined by absolute majority that in Belarus there should be two state languages ​​- Russian and Belarusian and state symbols that are most similar to the Flag, coat of arms and anthem of the Belarusian Soviet Socialist Republic. This was the opinion of society. Then a few more additions: the death penalty, the abolition of two terms of the president and more. I’ll clarify again, this is the opinion of the people. And the electoral system also remained Soviet, without any parties. They created for themselves such a small world, comfortable for life. I don’t particularly consider economic issues, we have to pay world prices, for God's sake we will pay. And now look from this point of view at joining the Russian Federation, no matter the regions or autonomy. A flag resembling Vlasov appears, for Belarus it is still important, the coat of arms with an eagle, and the anthem is wonderful. Well, the electoral system, well, very muddy, with parties that are fighting for personal power, there is a lot to talk about here. And the question arises: Who needs this in Belarus? I don’t, my family doesn’t, but we come from the RSFSR. Sacrifice everything for relatively cheap oil and gas. A medium-sized business has appeared in Belarus that works according to established rules, they directly say that the Russian business will come to us, to us Khan, it is better to take things abroad. Something like that. request

    He does everything right. Yes, today oil from the Russian Federation is, conditionally, 60, and from the west 100. And tomorrow there will be 120 from the Russian Federation so what? The availability of alternative routes is not cheaper today, but the guarantee that tomorrow with Russia will be at least no more expensive than the world ones. And the fact that the liberals from the Russian government will raise domestic prices above world prices is a matter of time, because the fact that they raise prices inside the country (so far to world prices) and ruin their industry, reducing the competitiveness of domestic goods, is beyond doubt.

        For Belarus, Russian oil will always be more profitable. Even if Azerbaijani oil is cheaper than Russian oil, it must first be pumped to the Georgian port and filled in the terminals, then loaded onto a tanker and delivered to the Odessa port, reloaded into the oil terminal, then pumped through the Odessa-Brody pipeline, then to Druzhba and only then will go to the Mozyr Oil Refinery. By the way, from the Odessa-Brody oil pipeline Kolomoisky stole all technical oil, and Belneftekhim pumped out technical oil from Druzhba, and pumping without technical oil is impossible. The question is, one tanker is enough to create technical oil, so they pump one bucket up to Mozyr, everything else will go to technical oil.

        Of course I’ve bothered. Once they raised prices and processing became unprofitable, so who will remain silent, but what prevents them from further raising? moreover, if a monopolist. And foreign policy ... on TV, and even here, they will tell us that we feed everyone, and they are ungrateful, and allies are not needed, most importantly the army and navy. Wow, that’s funny.

          it is beneficial in any case. just for a simple reason, all communications are established. Logistics configured. direct delivery to the manufacturer bypassing various intermediaries. only margin falls. and it was her fall and the beginning of these tantrums. but it will not be in the case of a purchase from various sellers who simply can’t make a lower price, taking into account delivery. and the fact that Lukashenko is doing this right now is calling his ears frostbite. as for all fed. and this is not so forgive? even according to the most conservative estimates, the IMF in September 2016 estimated the total support of the Belarusian economy from Russia at $ 106 billion only for the period 2005-2015, or about $ 9,7 billion a year. Do you think they are grateful?

      of course
      apparently he supplied exclusively to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and the Russian Federation exclusively to civilian tanks.


      it can be seen that the Republic of Belarus supplies more gasoline, and the Russian Federation diesel.
      So it’s clear who is fueling the tanks ...

    Lukashenko has a desire to buy oil all over the world and for a high price, this is his personal business. To diversify oil flows, again, the desire is essentially healthy, and in fact a country at a loss. Demonstratively opposing himself to Russia, on my part, it seems to me, stupidity. Wants to become the second Poroshenko? He wants to make Ukraine number 2 from Belarus? I have the opinion that the actions of Lukashenko, recently, are not aimed at benefiting the people of Belarus, but at trying to personally gain something for themselves. By all means trying to prevent the unification of our two states, he is trying to exclusively maintain his own unlimited power in Belarus, but at the same time worsening the life of the Belarusian people. IMHO

    As always, in the morning a bucket of slop on Belarusians. Oligarchic monkeys put an end to the friendship of peoples. And we generally have one people. But at the same time they are intensively pumping gold from Russia.
    And where would you think? To Belarus?
    - No!
    To Ukraine?
    - No!
    To England?
    "Sales of Russian gold abroad jumped eight times in 2019, to $ 5,7 billion, and almost the entire volume was exported to the UK, according to Russian customs data. Brexit helped increase the export of precious metals in Russia."

    Why are you climbing to them? Want to buy in other countries? Let them buy. This is their own business, they are an independent state and are capable of deciding what is beneficial for them and what is not.
    The matter is of course personal and they are true. That's only from a human and political point of view, dealing with a big darling. Throughout the years of Belarusian independence, Russia has practically dated their economy, and in return - why aren’t you giving (figuratively) for free? And away we go: Moscow is so syaky, Russians want ....

    Defender 2020: NATO will work to seize Belarus to attack Russia
    02.03.2020/2020/XNUMX Leave a comment on Defender XNUMX: NATO will work to seize Belarus for an attack on Russia
    In the countries of Eastern Europe, large-scale exercises “DEFENDER ‑ Europe 20” have started, during which NATO countries intend to work out supposedly defense against an attack by Russia. At the same time, more than 20 thousand contingents of the US Army are supposed to be transferred across the Atlantic, which should connect with 9 thousand American soldiers based in Europe and another 8 thousand troops from other countries of the Alliance, and after that - a march to Russian borders, near which basic maneuvers will take place. For information on what is included in the training program and why they could potentially threaten security and maintain a balance of power in Eastern Europe, read the article by Alexander Tikhansky, military expert, Ph.D. in Sociology, leading researcher at the International University of MITSO in Minsk.

    What is DEFENDER Europe 20
    These days, when all the attention is paid to the struggle between Russia and NATO countries in Syria and Libya within the framework of the market and raw materials division of the world, no less significant events are taking place on the East European front. Losing its position in the Middle East, the Pentagon seeks to strengthen its position in Europe. The large-scale maneuvers of the American troops DEFENDER Europe 20, affecting the territory of ten European countries, are exclusively devoted to this — moreover, NATO structures do not command, they only “assist” American units.

    Launched in January of this year, the Defender of Europe 2020 exercise (DEFENDER Europe 20) is one of NATO’s largest military events over the past 25 years. According to the organizers (read: USA), during the exercises, the scenario of "defending" Europe in the event of an "attack" of Russia will be worked out. In addition to 16 NATO member countries, in particular, the USA, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Poland and the Baltic countries, military infrastructure and the territory of Finland and Georgia will be involved (interestingly, Turkey will not participate in maneuvers, although Georgia is nearby) .

    Almost 40 thousand military personnel will be involved in the exercises, including 25 thousand US troops (of which about 20 thousand (!) Will be transferred from the USA), and 33 thousand units of military equipment. The maneuvers themselves - their active phase - will last until May (apparently, to the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II), but the troops will only go to their places of permanent deployment by August. Over a vast territory from Germany to the borders of Russia in the Baltic states, this numerous armored group will work out military logistics and implement the principles of “military Schengen”. In the west, the main forces are concentrated along the axis of Estonia - Bulgaria, but part of the troops will be transferred to Georgia - Russia, thus, will be taken into a semicircle from the west and south.

    Are there any analogues?
    For the first time, such large NATO maneuvers were held back in 1995. Although, for example, in the exercises called the Trident Juncture, which took place in 2018 in Norway with the participation of 29 NATO member countries, as well as Sweden and Finland, more than 50 thousand (!) military personnel were involved. Since 2011, NATO members such as Poland and the Baltic countries, with the participation of the United States, have regularly conducted Saber Strike exercises. Again, in Poland, once every two years, exercises are held under the name "Anaconda" (Anakonda), in which all NATO member countries participate. During these exercises, the scenario of capturing the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad and the capital of Belarus, Minsk, is being worked out. That is, in the military maneuvers of NATO and Belarus, it is openly taken on the sights.

    In September 2019, the U.S. Army tank battalion arrived in Lithuania. It consists of 500 troops, 30 Abrams tanks and 25 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles. This tactical group is deployed at a training ground in Pabrad, 10-15 km from the border with Belarus. It is noteworthy that all expenses for the preparation of the base and the maintenance of the unit were borne by the Lithuanian side.

    The official version is that the tank battalion arrived to participate in the NATO Atlantic Resolve exercises. Such maneuvers are regularly carried out by the Western military bloc in the neighboring Baltic states and Poland, but this situation has several features.

    First, the tank battalion reaches the border of Belarus almost six months before the exercises.

    Secondly, NATO has not yet deployed its heavy offensive equipment so close to the state border of the Republic of Belarus.

    Thirdly, the configuration of NATO bases is consistently lining up around the territory of Belarus.

    In the light of recently released information that the US military is developing scenarios involving a nuclear strike against Belarus, all this fits into the scheme of actions of American strategists, and, from a military point of view, there is nothing surprising here.

    The Americans perfectly understand the nature of our defensive obligations to the Russian allies within the framework of the Union State and the CSTO bloc, therefore, when planning an attack on Russia (naturally, exclusively “in response to Russian aggression”), the Pentagon objectively needs to defeat the Belarusian state, which the American military is laying in its plans.

    What is special about it?
    It should be noted that military exercises of NATO countries at the borders of Russia and Belarus are commonplace. Every year, on land and sea, the United States and its European satellites conduct up to fifty different kinds of exercises and maneuvers, most of which, as a hypothetical scenario, involve opposition from Russia. However, the planned DEFENDER Europe 20 exercises are somewhat distinguished from this series at once by a number of signs.

    The first is scale. Most of the military exercises of NATO countries were conducted locally (with the participation of military units of a number of countries, but within one or more countries). DEFENDER Europe 20 will be held on the territory of 10 European countries at once.

    Secondly, about 40 thousand troops from 18 NATO countries and alliance partners will take part in them. 40 thousand - this in itself is a lot by European standards. In addition, they called Ukraine, although usually it participates in exercises either on its territory or is invited to small minor maneuvers.

    Thirdly, 20 of the 40 thousand troops will arrive from the United States, which will be the largest transfer of American troops to undergo training in Europe over the past 25 years. Accordingly, it is not NATO that oversees the preparation of the exercises, but the US European Command.

    Fourth, the timing. The time is indicated as April-May 2020. That is, maneuvers will stretch for at least a couple of weeks (whereas regular exercises fit in 4-7 days). However, only the active phase of the exercises will take so much, while the deployment of troops began in January 2020, and the return of troops to bases in the United States and Europe is expected only by August. Thus, in general, DEFENDER Europe 20 is an event that takes about half a year.

    Fifth, the region of the venue. The end point will be the Baltic states: a hint that these exercises are an answer not only to Russia's modernization of its armed forces, but also to the development of defense initiatives within the framework of the Union State and the CSTO. Moreover, all these 40 thousand soldiers will not come to the Baltic states immediately. The troops will arrive at military bases in the Federal Republic of Germany, and then will be redeployed to the Baltic states via Poland via roads, railways and sea transport.

    Military buildup
    Already in Poland and the Baltic states there are about 10 thousand troops of the USA and other NATO countries. In the near future, American troops in Poland will increase by about another thousand troops. Over the past years, the United States and NATO have been creating and modernizing military infrastructure (military bases and airfields, ports, transport routes, etc.) in Poland and the Baltic states, and have been working out various schemes for the rapid redeployment of troops from the United States and other NATO countries from both the mainland USA and from Western Europe. In Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Poland, warehouses for heavy weapons of the US armored division have been created or are being created. And NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on February 20, 2020 said that the alliance countries will invest $ 260 million in the construction of military facilities for the US armed forces in Poland.

    In February 2019, a tender of engineering troops was posted on the US government procurement site for the construction of a “complex for long-term storage and maintenance of equipment” at Powids Air Base, “the largest construction project in recent years under the alliance to equip a storage complex for American military equipment.”

    The stupidity of Luka and his company, which controls Belarus, is playing into the hands of Western "partners", driving the economy into a corner. They don’t want to lose the rule of the fiefdom, and the people will somehow tolerate this rural socialism. The truth is tormented by doubts - but have their rulers prepared for themselves alternate aerodromes in this very West? Very similar to that.
