OREANDA-NEWS. Belarus submitted to Russia new proposals for oil supplies to the republic. This was announced to journalists on March 11 by the Prime Minister of Belarus Syarhey Rumas.

“The Belarusian side has submitted new proposals to the Russian side for oil companies, and the Russian side has accepted them,” he said. The head of the government added that the Russian party “promised to hold consultations with oil companies and provide an answer within a few days.” “At first glance, our proposals were not rejected by the Russian side. I think we will move forward on the resolution of this oil dispute,” Rumas concluded. At the same time, the politician noted that Belarus will purchase at least two tankers of oil from other sources every month, even if supplies from Russia are normalized.

Deliveries of Russian oil to Belarusian refineries were stopped on January 1, since Moscow and Minsk did not conclude an agreement on terms of supply for this year.
