Belarus in Europe: Forward “Batka” - Into Hell?

88

History with geography and ... economics



Despite the verbose rhetoric directed against Lukashenka personally, the European Union hesitates to impose economic sanctions on Belarus. This is due not only to real economic factors for most of its neighboring countries, but also to the political and economic geography of Belarus in the system of relations between Russia and the European Union.

It is enough to look at the geographical map and especially at the map of the economic geography of Belarus and the adjacent region to be convinced of the interstate importance of stability in this particular country. And, accordingly, in how important is now the predictability and intelligibility of the Belarusian foreign economic, including transit policy.

For example, the authorities of Lithuania, Poland, Latvia, with enviable regularity and persistence, threaten to stop importing Belarusian electricity if the Belarusian nuclear power plant is put into operation. It is obvious that in this case the speech is not about Lukashenka, but actually about the profitability of Belarusian electricity supplies for these countries.

In Lithuania and Latvia, the share of this Belarusian and Russian “product” now provides from 15 to 19% of the local electricity demand. In the east and north-east of Poland, this figure is not less than 15%. Such deliveries have been going on since the early 80s. It is clear that before the collapse of the USSR, such exports from Belarus and the above-mentioned regions of the Russian Federation were significantly higher.

At the same time, since the mid-90s, the supply price has remained 12-15% lower in comparison with the supply of domestic electricity production, and even more so electricity exports from neighboring EU countries. Therefore, it is not surprising that the authorities of Latvia, as well as Estonia, insisted that Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia will finally transfer to the EU's electrical system no earlier than 2025. As you know, it was originally planned to do this no later than 2020.

Belarus in Europe: Forward “Batka” - Into Hell?

In this case, we are talking about the electrical ring of the BRELL system (Belarus, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania). This system of reciprocal electricity supplies on preferential terms in the northwest of the former USSR turned out to be beneficial to all its participants: not only Belarus and the Baltic countries, but also the Kaliningrad, Pskov and Leningrad regions of the Russian Federation.

This system, by the way, has been operating since the end of the 70s and, in addition to the above-mentioned price benefits, it provides through mutual deliveries the operational coverage of electricity shortages (including due to accidents, natural disasters, etc.) in the countries and regions participating in BRELL. The Baltic media have repeatedly noted the aforementioned benefits of such a system.

In addition, not far from the Belarusian-Latvian border, the construction of a cascade of two West Dvina hydroelectric power plants is underway - in the Verkhne-Dvinsky and Novopolotsk districts of the Belarusian Vitebsk region. Their commissioning is scheduled no later than 2022.

This will allow to increase not only the supply of electricity to Latvia and adjacent areas of the Pskov region, but also transportation along the Western Dvina-Daugava (for more details, see. "The cascade of hydroelectric power plants on the Western Dvina will open up new opportunities for the Vitebsk region").

Transit corridor


The role of Belarus as the shortest and, moreover, the least costly transit corridor between Russia and Europe is well known. According to available estimates already this year, the share of transit through Belarus in the volume of foreign trade traffic from Russia to Europe exceeds 25%. At the same time, the railway and road communication of the Kaliningrad region with other regions of the Russian Federation along the shortest route and with the lowest costs, we recall, is possible only along the Belarusian-Lithuanian corridor.

Note in this regard that it is in Belarus since the mid-90s that the minimum freight transit tariffs have been established for Russia and other CIS countries for all types of transport / transportation and for all cargo. Including transportation with the Kaliningrad exclave.

It is also worth reminding that for several years now Minsk has indirectly restrained Lithuania's inflation of "Kaliningrad" transit tariffs. To be more precise, in order to maintain their acceptable level, Belarusian foreign trade transit through the ports of Lithuania is growing: since the beginning of the 2000s, this is almost half of their annual cargo volume; and also periodically reduced Belarusian tariff rates for Lithuanian foreign trade transit.

In exchange, Vilnius is (more precisely, until recently, it has invariably been) for transit benefits for Kaliningrad and Belarus. Of course, such "barter" was beneficial for Russia as well. Taking these factors into account, it is not surprising that the other day the Association of Lithuanian Ports announced the expediency of maintaining a stable volume of freight traffic between Lithuania and Belarus.



Other integration


Belarusian foreign trade transit today is more than a third of the annual income of Latvian ports, railways and the oil pipeline (Russia - Polotsk - Karnyava - Ventspils port). Almost 25% of the annual income of the Estonian transport system is, again, transit freight traffic in Belarus.

According to the well-known Latvian political scientist Andis Kudors,

“For Latvia, trade and transit with Belarus are beneficial, therefore relations are maintained. Moreover, “through Belarus, one can also work with Russia, one of the key trade partners of Latvia. Even despite the cooling of political relations, the trade turnover between states is measured in billions of euros. "

It is noted in this regard that "making friends" with Russia

"It is openly unprofitable politically, but with Belarus or through it, it could be done quite successfully."

Therefore Latvia

“Behaves quite pragmatically, not exacerbating, but observing what is happening. If Lukashenka resists, we will work with him. The main thing is not to bet on the wrong horse. "

Similar assessments are expressed in the Estonian and Lithuanian media.

It is important in the same context that the neighboring regions of Belarus, Latvia and Russia participate in the zone of economic and environmental cooperation "Western Dvina - Daugava", initiated by Belarus in the late 90s. In particular, in these regions the festival of culture "Pridvinye" and fairs of goods of these regions are annually held. Which, of course, has a positive effect on Russian-Latvian relations.

        It is not surprising that using such "throwing" of some layers of the Belarusian society, various emissaries will methodically drive wedges between the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation.

        They also appeared on VO. Well, the Young Europeans are so concerned about the "pain of the Belarusian people" that a tear is welling up ... They are worried as if for their own ...
        And how does Lukashenka, a wonderful, kind man, do what happened in the 90s? In your opinion, Belarusians should tolerate this falsifier - a criminal, so that it doesn't become like you did in the 90s? But they do not want to endure! Never!

              The choice is now made by Belarus.
              Russia made its choice long ago.
              And now Belarus is at a crossroads.
              Moreover, the choice is either to remain, or to degrade until disintegration.

                Belarus has to make a second choice. In the 90s under Yeltsin, it was Lukashenko who was the initiator and "engine" in the efforts to create a full-fledged Union. But his aspirations were "turned off" by the pro-Western "well-wishers" from Yeltsin's Russia ...

                Here, Father, now, although at a crossroads, but the "sediment", after the "spoons", makes itself felt ...

                  During this time, Lukashenka's "engine" made many extremely multidirectional movements.

                      Regarding the influence of the Chubais and others like them from those teams.
                      I believe that they have no weight in decision-making.
                      There is only one active team now.

                      Lukashenko's meeting Putin will determine the further sequence of actions to be taken by Belarus.
                      It will all decide how consistently and successfully this program of action will be carried out.

          So the evidence will be that the elections were rigged and there was torture, you fool propaganda? All proofs about torture are the cry of a prostitute (in the literal sense), on which for some reason there was not a scratch after the torture. And yes, stupid, the Russian Federation has not yet intervened, and your opponents tried to pretend to be sheep and the fact that they are not against us (one to one, like on the Maidan - not for the EU and NATO, but so that the yanyk left and not live in shit). Well, yes, the prohibition of the Russian language, the withdrawal from the ODKB and all agreements with the Russian Federation are apparently not against the Russian Federation.

        And what is the point of commenting on these daily topics here? The opinion of the Belarusians is not interesting to the main users or regulars of VO from the word at all. For them, we, Belarusians, are not a nation, not a people, not people who have the right to decide their own destiny and who have the right to CHOICE how to dispose of our lives, and how to solve problems in our country.

        Who are we for Voshniks? Buffer territory, a meat shield from the evil "NATO", "lost and zombie Russians", fragments of Russia that need to be returned to the great "gatherer of Russian lands."

    Yes, there are deceived, there are also deceived by such propagandists as Karpusha and others like him.
    There are those who are conscientiously mistaken, but they are getting smaller and smaller. After the manifestation of the goals of the positioners.
    The bulk of the protesters are half-witted minors and studiosus,
    who clearly want to be expelled. Well, okay, they are waiting in the army ...
    They will teach you how to love your homeland.
    There is another category of protestors - entrepreneurs.
    They hired to work in their kiosks and shops, hairdressers, boutiques, etc.
    And they want freedom. From taxes "very heavy" and unbearable, from the oppression of inspections, to live on their own
    2 percent with 300 percent mark-up on all goods and services ...
    And here, on the site, paid trolls are mainly drowned for the "horrors of the regime.
    Don't trust them. We are in the majority, we work and don't go to rallies. We are not on strike.
    But believe me, if it becomes unbearable, we will go out ...

    Yes, not so rosy as the author describes.
    Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia have already signed an agreement on the refusal to purchase electricity from Belarus since the launch of the nuclear power plant in Osovets.
    Politics is ahead of the economy - for the limitrophes. For leading players, politics is a way to advance their economic interests.
    Simple examples:
    USA - Poland - refusal to switch to expensive LNG;
    EU - Baltics, - the closure of the "harmful" Ignalina NPP, which led to an increase in the cost of electricity (is it okay that the share of nuclear power in France is 72%?), And now there is also a refusal from cheap Belarusian electricity. There are already rubbing their hands, tk. as a result, they will be able to increase their sales. Lithuanians have already estimated that as a result, the cost of electricity for consumers will increase by about 20%.

      Back to what? The economy of Belarus has been heading for the abyss for the last 5 years. GDP is falling, persistently high inflation and devaluation after devaluation. Do you think people started to leave because Lukashenka faked the elections? He had forged them before, but no one came out. People don't care who is in power, Lukashenka or the devil is bald. The main level of wealth. While Lukashenka was able to provide this level by trading in oil products, there was support. But as soon as the free oil ran out, the economy cracked at the seams. And then they don't give loans either. Sashka leads us to default and the complete destruction of the country for next to nothing.
