Minsk counts on IMF assistance in the amount of $ 900 million amid global economic problems

Minsk counts on IMF assistance in the amount of $ 900 million amid global economic problems

Belarus turned out to be almost the only country on the European continent where it was decided not to take any special measures against the background of the spread of coronavirus. They even decided not to cancel the national football championship, which automatically made the tournament as popular as possible in terms of the number of views in Europe.


Today, Belarus reported on the status of coronavirus infection in the country's armed forces. It is stated that not a single case of infection of the Belarusian military personnel COVID-19 has been identified.

The total number of detected infected in Belarus is 152 people.

As it turned out, the relatively calm situation did not prevent Minsk from applying for financial assistance from the International Monetary Fund. As it turns out, the Belarusian authorities, together with representatives of the National Bank, are discussing with the IMF questions of possible financial support against the backdrop of global economic problems caused primarily by the situation on coronavirus.

During the discussion, the issue of the so-called express financing tool through the International Monetary Fund will be touched upon. Earlier, the IMF promised to send about $ 40 billion to solve economic problems - to those countries that have average budget revenues and face negative manifestations in the economy. According to Belarusian media, Minsk is counting on financial assistance from the IMF in the amount of $ 900 million.

Today it became known that the European Union decided to provide assistance to Ukraine from its funds. According to recent reports, the EU allocated Ukraine $ 80 million to fight against coronavirus. And the first decision of the Ukrainian authorities after this turned out to be the decision to resign the head of the Ministry of Health - the one who stated that it was necessary to spend money on treating young people, not "corpses." An official of the Ukrainian government called pensioners over the age of 65 years the most at risk COVID-19.

    It’s bad that Belarus does not border with the Saudis.
    So Batko would try to sit on three chairs: Russia, the European Union and the Saudis.

            "Freebie" is the middle name of Lukashenko. It’s only, if this was banning with Russia (until recently), then with the West, this will not work. For the "Western freebie", you have to pay exorbitantly. Ukraine has already sold out the last land. And as they shouted, "the West will help us," and here is the result. Old wisdom, bowed to the usurer - left with nothing.

      As far as I understand, this is about another: according to the results of the force majeure virtual extended “20s”, the IMF allocates money to each country. They hope to “fill in” the crisis-schmise with gasoline, and Uncle Sam will still print it ... He should stand by November 6, but he must hold out the night. And then .... even though the grass does not grow.
      Well, Belarus will receive its lion's share (within).

      They will give something, the question is - How much? The IMF seemed to be planning to distribute these 40 billion between one and a half hundred states, and here Minsk alone claims almost a billion. Doubts are great. Unless, of course, one nibble from 900, then maybe they will allocate, a dozen more than Ukraine. It is unlikely that such an amount is critical for Belarus. At the same time, taking into account the political and economic disagreements between Moscow and Minsk, the fund may fork out the desired amount in order to increase the debt burden on Belarus, which would further “monetize” the debt into political steps against the implementation of programs on the creation of a union state with Russia.

    While Russia is fighting against the spread of the coronavirus, Moscow’s relations with Minsk continue the fascinating series “Hail oil without a premium from damned Muscovites”. And the thing is that in April Alexander Lukashenko will again have to suck his paw instead of getting cheap raw materials for the refinery. laughing What a drama. It turns out that Russia, tired of the irrelevant outbursts, took over from Lukashenko his own manner of doing business. And applied this manner to him. In words, Moscow promises Minsk that everything will be openwork, but in reality it will make a fool of itself. “The ONT channel accidentally overheard the conversation between President Alexander Lukashenko and his assistant Alexander Kosints during a visit to the Belgips enterprise near Minsk.

    “And do not forget, you have a personal assignment for one virus. I will not speak publicly. You reported to me that everything is being tested. Consider that you already have the order in your pocket, if this is confirmed, ”Butska reassured the assistant, who, in turn, reassured Batska.

    However, Kosinets did not really explain anything to reporters. He only said that "the development is serious, a couple of weeks, and everything will become clear."

    I see, huh? In a couple of weeks, Lukashenko will announce that Belarus was the first in the world to develop a coronavirus vaccine. laughing

    Coronavirus met the flu

    And smiling says:
    I have mastered almost the planet
    Consider a human song sung.
    I will multiply my influence,
    I’ll destroy the human race
    What the plague and AIDS failed
    SARS, cholera, swine flu.
    And the flu virus answered like this:
    I’m methyl too,
    But how many years have I beat people
    I could not achieve their deaths.
    You captured only half of Europe.
    Others hid in the trenches.
    America, take China
    Well, in Belarus you will die.
    You know how they live:
    They eat garlic and drink vodka.
    In the morning there is a smell like hell.
    You want to go, I won’t go.

    While you dissolve the virus,
    You don’t scare people
    Without masks go and the crowd,
    They still laugh at you.
    They’ve bought alcohol for the future,
    The whole household block was scored with food
    And the virus is waiting as God's gift
    Forgetting the work calendar.
    Coronavirus listened to the flu
    And I thought - God, how I got into it.
    In the eyes of his longing and sadness -
    Yes, in Belarus, I myself am afraid.

    Firstly, if they themselves give then why not take it?
    He does not want to listen to Russia

    And you read your own reviews about it and think, if there is anything, does he need such an opinion?
    "Freebie" is the middle name of Lukashenko. It’s only, if such a thing proceeded with Russia

    His middle name is FATHER, but Belarus has never seen freebies from Russia.
    Remember that Belarus gave away all the nuclear junk, bombers, warheads, and missiles to Russia for free, and when Belarus needed modern airplanes, Russia did it to the maximum. Loans for Belarus, Russia gives at a larger percentage than its Western partners. Well, the discounts on oil and gas were not commensurate less than the free profit from their transit through Belarus.
    And it is precisely Russia that closes the border in front of the goods of its neighbor with property racketeering, it is engaged in by mother.
    At the wrong time he began to change horses

    Well, at least one, tiny little example about leaving the alliances with Russia and moving to other unions!
    And if without emotion, then everyone is laughing at Lukashenko and time passes and he turns out to be right, this is an easily verified fact.
