Russia limited deliveries to Ukraine of oil products and coal. Now for their implementation it is necessary to get special permission of the Ministry of Economic Development of the Photo: Artem Geodakyan / Moscow on Thursday, April 18, limited to TASS supply of oil products and coal to Ukraine. Kiev strongly depends on our power goods. How it receives them now and how, perhaps, will receive further? It is impossible to say that Russia forbade export of fuel to Ukraine. Forbade oil. But Ukraine and so almost does not buy the Russian raw materials, long ago having replaced it Azerbaijani. The most important is, of course, oil products. But we did not forbid their export, and only limited. To deliver gasoline and the diesel to Ukraine, it will be necessary to get special permission of the Ministry of Economic Development. On what bases it will give it or to refuse — it is unknown. Ukraine receives about 40% of oil products from Russia. Not without reason in some circles were indignant more than once: we thereby help Kiev to be at war with Donbass, filling in diesel fuel in their military equipment. However, Ukraine buys large volumes in Belarus. But it too Russian fuel, re-export. The situation is commented by the Ukrainian economist Alexander Okhrimenko. Alexander Okhrimenko the president of the Ukrainian analytical center "Does not deliver Russia oil to Ukraine long ago, it is more than ten years so here the ban has no value. And here oil products — this year nearly a half of import oil products arrives from Russia. So in principle yes, it is valid, it is very essential to Ukraine. I so understand that if Russia does not put, will buy more in Belarus because Ukraine bought all previous years oil products in Belarus much. It's clear that it is the Russian oil, but bought in Belarus". If deliveries from Russia really are reduced, then they, naturally, will grow from Belarus. Our Minsk colleagues, of course, will not miss an opportunity to use a situation and to raise the prices of motor fuel for Kiev. It will be difficult to reproach them with it, so do all countries, even most "brotherly". Rise in price of gasoline will become blow for the Ukrainian economy, especially now when there are active field works. It both increase in prices, and reduction of export of the Ukrainian agricultural products possible in the future. But there is one more collision: we have difficult relations and with Minsk, and they are just connected with oil supply. Quite recently Belarus promised to raise the prices of transit. Then Alexander Lukashenko reported at all that he will stop a pipe on repair. It, of course, will even stronger complicate a situation for Ukraine because the Belarusian oil products are the processed Russian oil. If not one "but": Belarus earns billions of dollars on supply of our raw materials, and nobody trusts in a transit stop, the Belarusian economist Sergey Shiptenko says. Sergey Shiptenko is the Belarusian economist "The termination of transit is unprofitable to Belarus for very many reasons. Within literally two-three months it will lead to complex social, economic and on
