Due to the supply of low-quality oil from the Russian Federation, Belarus suspended the export of light petroleum products to Ukraine, Poland, and the Baltic states, writes “Agro-Center”.
“Supply of light petroleum products, gasoline and diesel fuel to Ukraine, Poland, and the Baltic states has been suspended until the issue of Russian oil is resolved,”
said Sergei Grib, deputy director for commercial issues at the “Belarusian Petroleum Company”.
According to him, it is a question of supplying light petroleum products, gasoline, and diesel fuel, to Ukraine and other countries. The decline in exports is due to the need to supply the domestic market. The Belarusian side is working to ensure that there are no contractual sanctions.
It was announced shortly after a statement of the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Medvedev, on the introduction of a ban on the export of petroleum products to Ukraine. He assured that since June this year, the export of petroleum products to Ukraine will be possible only with special permits.
Let’s recall that by this time a significant part of Ukraine’s fuel came from Belarus.
