Russia, Belarus to Start Oil Consultations

Belarusian Prime Minister Andrei Kobyakov arrived in Moscow Tuesday for consultations on oil shipments and transit, VolgaPolitInfo reports. Meanwhile, another Belarusian delegation headed by that country’s first deputy minister of the economy, Vladimir Naidunov, arrived in Moscow Monday.

It became known Monday that Russian oil transit across Brelarus was halted, as the governments of Poland, Germany, Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia confirmed the cut-off of Russian oil. The 4,000-kilometer-long Druzhba pipeline crossing Belarus transmits over 1 million barrels a day.

Russia demands that the Belarusian government cancel the tax on Russian oil going to Europe across the territory of Belarus, which Moscow deems unlawful. Minsk, in turn, says Belarus needs to compensate the losses they incur now that Russia has imposed the export duty of $180 a ton on oil sold to Belarus.
