Lukashenko speaks about oil, but means another?


The president of Belarus warned that Moscow can lose the only ally in the West because of the tax maneuver. Also Lukashenko for the first time told about results of negotiations with Putin of the Photo: Vasily Fedosenko/Reuters Alexander Lukashenko threatened with purchase of oil in the Baltics. Besides, the Belarusian president said that Russia can lose the only ally on the western direction, and reminded of losses of the Belarusian budget in 400 million dollars connected with rise in price of the Russian oil. But the fact that the Belarusian leader for the first time commented on negotiations with Vladimir Putin is more important. They took place in the last days of the last year, but official statements about their results were not. Because of some pathetic 400 million petrodollars to lose the ally on the western direction — Lukashenko approximately in this way spoke. But, it is possible — there is such politological version — behind a talk on oil there is another. In the last days of the last year Lukashenko and Putin met twice, having held hours-long negotiations, and still any official statement was not. Only nearly two weeks later the head of Belarus decided on the comment. It is possible to assume that leaders discussed not so much energy costs, how many creation of the Union State. It has to come to the end by 2025 — with uniform emission center, court, customs, and, above all, with uniform power market, as Belarus demands — to buy oil and gas at the Russian domestic prices. But as Moscow obviously not the altruist, it is logical to assume also a counter question: and what for low prices it is ready to make Minsk? The Belarusian political scientist Alexander Klaskovsky continues: Alexander Klaskovsky is a political scientist "The Belarusian official leader, on the one hand, does not want to tease Moscow, to irritate with some rhetoric about independence, but de facto the Belarusian leaders, of course, seriously thought of how to get out of this situation, without conceding in these questions. Most likely, the Belarusian leaders expect to delay these negotiations on advance in respect of allied construction, and meanwhile after all to achieve some partial compensation from Moscow for tax maneuver in the oil industry". The business background such is. Russia sells to Belarus oil duty-free now, that is, in fact, gives to the neighbor billions of dollars. But from this year Moscow within tax maneuver gradually nullifies export duty and at the same time lifts an internal tax on production. Therefore, the cost of the Russian oil for Belarus grows — this year, according to the estimates of Minsk, on those 400 million about which Lukashenko was distressed. Though he also admitted that for Belarus it is not such big money. But time Russia wants them to select at Minsk, the offended fraternal people will go some other way — will buy oil in the Baltics. With economic sight it is very expensive, the leading analyst Fonda of national energy security Igor Yushkov says: Igor Yushkov is the leading analyst of Fund of national energy security "Give we we will buy from someone
