Minsk, as a response to Lithuania's intervention, may refuse to use the port of Klaipeda

86

A measure was outlined that could be applied by Minsk in case of continued active interference by Vilnius in the internal affairs of Belarus.


Today the Lithuanian Seim (Parliament) adopted a resolution according to which Alexander Lukashenko is not recognized as the elected President of the Republic of Belarus. Former candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya is on the territory of Lithuania, which Vilnius is promoting to the presidency of Belarus. Moreover, both the President of Lithuania and the head of the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs have already spoken out, stating that they are demanding either a recount of votes or re-elections. Also, the Ministry of Energy of Lithuania states that they expect from the "new leadership of Belarus to resolve the issue of the Belarusian nuclear power plant."

Minsk is still collecting data and claims from the Lithuanian authorities in a "special folder". And the reaction in case of special persistence of Vilnius from Minsk may follow different - including economic.

One of the potentially effective methods for sobering up the Lithuanian authorities is the possible refusal to use the Lithuanian Klaipeda as a transshipment port. Today it is Belarusian export and Belarusian import that is an important component of the economic activity of the port of Klaipeda. At one time, "Belaruskali" acquired a 30% stake in a Lithuanian company serving the bulk cargo terminal of the port of Klaipeda.

Now (and this is being said in Lithuania itself) Minsk can take certain economic steps towards Lithuania, refusing to transship cargo through the port of Klaipeda in favor of Russian ports.

At the same time, the Lithuanian prime minister Saulius Skvernelis believes that “it will not be economically beneficial for Belarus”.

      I hope more for similar actions in relation to Ukraine, for example, a ban on the supply of fuels and lubricants. So that the APU equipment would simply stand up. Although, it's too good to be true ... money ...

        First, you need to sell the block of shares, for example, to the Poles or some Estonians, and then refuse the services of the port.
        Subsequently, you can buy back the shares of the port that have become securities. And Belarus will have its own access to the sea wink Shrimp will be completely official !!

                In return, Minsk must recognize Abkhazia, Ossetia, LPR, DPR. Recognize Crimea as Russian.
                And to confirm the State with Russia by a complete merger.

                And finally, the AHL will personally send comrades from the State Department and the entire EU, including the Turks.

                And you will remain, Grygorich, for centuries the man who united the torn Russian people.

                And all this must be done in Belovezhskaya Pushcha.

                  Again, "Minsk needs ..."
                  About the same news - "Now Minsk can take certain economic steps in relation to Lithuania, refusing to transshipment of goods through the port of Klaipeda in favor of Russian ports."
                  Only for some reason the authors of such articles do not come up with a simple thought: Minsk today is already a little different from Lukashenka.
                  To be more precise, it is not at all what Lukashenka is. These are no longer synonyms.
                  And this other Minsk will somehow deal with its problems on its own, without instructions from the outside, what it supposedly should do.

                  In my opinion, yesterday, on the radio "Moscow speaking", there was an interview with Sergei Stankevich. He claimed that the "Union Treaty" had been ratified between Russia and Belarus. Moreover, both parliaments. It remains only to gather four representatives each, including presidents and prime ministers, from the spirit of the parties and discuss the details of the reunification.

        What's the difference, the Russian Federation has no reason to worry about the fate of someone else's port. I think this is how it should be - you are hostile: then we will let someone else earn money. And the Russian Federation will find an opportunity to make another route attractive.
        By that newly made it is necessary at least to read newspapers or something: several years ago, when neighboring Latvia reproached the Russian Federation, that it redirects railway cargo to its ports and does not allow the development of the Latvian railway; the ambassador of the Russian Federation clearly answered: we do not set as our goal the development of your railway ... uuups, since then they have been smoothly 'winding up'

        There is no Russian "transit" route through Klaipeda for a long time. Transshipment, and of cargo to Belarus and Kazakhstan. Although the port is not freezing, it withers from year to year. Shipbuilding and ship repair on the verge of sludge. Everything is the same as it was in 1940.

          VILNIUS, 13 Apr - Sputnik. Klaipeda port has broken the last year's record for cargo turnover, the port's press service reports.

            Klaipeda has always been the least dependent on Russian transit in contrast to its neighbors. Its main flows are local and Belarusian mineral fertilizers, oil products from the home refinery Orlen Lietuva, containers. The decrease in the cargo turnover of the Klaipeda seaport in 2019 is due to the expiration in the second half of the year of contracts on the export of Belarusian fertilizers to Asia and a reduction in the loading of oil products.

              During the first six months of this year, Klaipeda port handled 22,1 million tons of cargo, which is 6,6 percent less than in the same period last year. This was reported by the press service of the sea harbor.

              Well, in principle, cargo turnover for Lithuania is not bad 46 million tons. The same figures for two ports of Latvia and 5 ports of Estonia. And at the same time, the new port of Ust Luga for 100 million tons. Primorsk and Peter 60 million tons each. Ust Luga and Primorsk have taken away almost all Russian cargo turnover in the Baltic. Plus, Russia is working through Finland.

    Be that as it may, the answer is good and is aimed precisely at the vulnerable point of the current politicians closely connected with business - the Lithuanian pocket. Of course, not the main customers of what is happening are sitting in Lithuania, but this will have to think about. The lost industry of Belarus, if the coup succeeds, will surely hit the European Union, and even more so in a pandemic.

        I remember Klaipeda at the beginning of the XNUMXs, when the cunning Lithuanians literally squeezed the traditional transit of Belaruskali products from Latvians through Ventspils. In Ventspils, the dockers themselves said that the port could not survive in such conditions.
        And in Klaipeda, the stevedore brigadier then received 1 thousand litas a month, which at the rate was equal to 2 thousand evergreens.
        With the beginning of the construction of Ust-Luga, and the withdrawal of Russian transit from the Baltic states, things in Klaipeda went slack. But they were proudly planning to build a terminal for handling supercontainer carriers from Maersk. They even started one, for an experiment ...
        Today the port of Klaipeda is famous for its Independence storage tanker. Which, when floats up, during the emptying of tanks from liquefied Norwegian gas, demonstrates the tricolor. Not Latvian. lol
        And so - yes, the port is functioning, the Mukran-Klaipeda line is operating as the shortest route for goods from Germany through the Baltic states.

        We need to pick out who the owners are. I was also in Klapeida, but for a long time, when there were a lot of retirees of the Navy, no one wanted to leave. It seemed that Russian-speaking people are engaged in business in Klaipeda, locals for a Luchge share in Europe. The Ukrainians did repairs to the class. At the beginning of 2000, the trawl fleet in Klaipeda made "vacuum cleaners" from Mozund, the miracle yard is mostly Ukrainians. Look at the cargo turnover, dad gave them a second wind, and now we need to load Ust Luga, ours are shooting something grandiose there. hi

    smile Good quotes by Mitrokh:
    First, you need to sell the block of shares, and only then refuse the port's services.
    Subsequently, you can buy back the shares of the port that have become securities. And Belarus will have its own access to the sea. Shrimps will become completely official !!

    It is a good idea to sell, the round-trip transport will be stopped, and in half a year, when the share price falls below the baseboard, to buy a port. smile

    Also, the Ministry of Energy of Lithuania states that they expect from the "new leadership of Belarus to resolve the issue of the Belarusian nuclear power plant."
    Lithuania has become completely insolent, it already considers the territory of Belarus to be its fiefdom, and even removes one Belarusian president and puts another. But most of all, Lithuania needs to prevent the launch of the Bel NPP. And if Lithuania gave refuge to Tikhanovskaya, and promotes her to this post in the EU, then in gratitude they can close the Bel NPP. But what about the Russian loan for the construction of a nuclear power plant, who will give 10 billion. Or how Ukraine is still barking at Russia, but has not given away 3 billion.

    At the same time, the Lithuanian prime minister Saulius Skvernelis believes that “it will not be economically beneficial for Belarus”.

    Frightened .. There is no time for the economy, such interference in the internal affairs of the state, in general, it smacks of war! In my opinion, everything goes to the fact that Belarus will become part of Russia, without any special conditions ..

    In Klaipeda, there is the Bellarusian plant for the packaging of callium salt BKT, the salary is about 3000 euros, plus about 40% of the cargo is transshipped by the port itself, the rest of Russia, if the Belarusians are closed, then only the container business will remain.

      Well, how not to go when the territory of modern Belarus was the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, and then the Commonwealth. There is even a witness to the Nesvizh castle. In the XVI-XX centuries. - the residence of the Radziwill princes.

    Now (and this is being spoken about in Lithuania itself) Minsk can take certain economic steps towards Lithuania, refusing to transship cargo through the port of Klaipeda in favor of Russian ports

    Aha, but before it was impossible? Then Luka played the anti-Russian card in every possible way. And now he was offended by the litvins' molded syabrov. Luca, such a Luca. wink

    And recently I read here in VO that Belarus wanted to use the port in Klaipeda. That oil purchased from Norway should go through this port. This was supposed to be an element of pressure to reduce the price of Russian oil.

    https://topwar.ru/166960-belorussija-zakupila-partiju-norvezhskoj-nefti.html
    (According to the agreement, the oil will be delivered on January 22 through the Lithuanian port of Klaipeda, rather by rail ...

    Earlier it was reported that Minsk could not agree with Russian oil companies on oil supplies from January 1, 2020, after which the Belarusian president Alexander Lukashenko ordered to look for alternative supplies of oil products.

    First Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus Dmitry Krutoy said that the government had sent commercial offers to buy oil to Ukraine, Poland, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and the Baltic countries.

    just don’t say that if Belarus refuses to transit its export-import
    cargo through Klaipel port, it will not be profitable for Belarus. No matter how it is. Distance from
    the Belarusian border at the entrance to the territory of Lithuania, in fact, the same as before the Lithuanian
    Klaipeda port, which is to the Russian ports in Kalininrad and Pionersk through Lithuania. And in fact, the same distance by rail from the Belarusian border to the Russian port in Ust-Luga, in a straight line through the territory of Russia. In Pionersk, Kaliningrad region, Russia has built a new powerful port, a new powerful port in Ust-Luga, ports in Kaliningrad and St. Petersburg, and Lukoshenko drives export-import through the Lithuanian Klaipeda. For the money that Belarus pays to Lithuania, Lithuania builds nests and dens of Russophobia and hatred of Russia, pay NATO out of this money, and supports all kinds of Gozmans, Kasparovs, Kasyanovs, Svanidz, Khodorkovskys, etc. Because the gatherings of these enemies of Russia have been going on in Vilnius for a couple of years. It discusses plans on how to harm Russia, and Lukashenka, through the transit of goods to the port of Klaipeda, feeds Lithuania, which clearly wants the demise of Russia, and the enemies of Russia. So you have not read the comments on the Lithuanian websites when the Turks shot down a Russian plane, when ISIS shot down a Russian plane and a Russian pilot died when the plane with the ensemble fell. Alexandrova. Thousands of comments in Lithuanian with delight, like a holiday for them, that Russian pilots and artists were killed, They were even happy that Dr. Lisa died. And today, in Syria, a Russian major general died, so how many joyful comments on
    Lithuanian sites. Read who knows the Lithuanian language. And no one there deletes such comments. Such an order was given at the state level to editors and moderators. But in the Belarusian Foreign Ministry, there are analysts and translators who report to Lukashenka about what is happening in Lithuania. As, by the way, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs should also report to the Russian leadership what is being done in that Lithuania. And the Belarusian transit goes to the Klaipeda port, and not to the ports of Russia ... just as, by the way, tanks with Russian oil from Russia are also very frequent guests in the Klaipeda port ...
