    Belarus Threatens To Tap Oil From Russian Pipeline

    Belarus Threatens To Tap Oil From Russian Pipeline


    Russia's Druzhba oil pipeline transits Belarus.

    2/14/20
    MINSK -- President Alyaksandr Lukashenka has said Belarus would start taking oil from a transit pipeline if Russia does not supply its neighbor with the required volumes of crude, the state news agency BelTA reports. Russian oil flows to Belarus have dwindled since the beginning of the year, as Minsk and Moscow failed to agree terms for oil supplies for 2020. Lukashenka, whose country is heavily reliant on Russia for cheap oil and billions in annual subsidies to prop up its Soviet-era economy, said on February 14 that Belarusian refineries received 500,000 tons of Russian crude in January instead of a planned 2 million tons. "If Russia doesn't supply oil in necessary volumes, we would start taking it from the transit pipeline," the Belarusian leader said, referring to the Druzhba pipeline, which crosses Belarusian territory and supplies about 1 million barrels of Russian oil to Europe. The dispute over Russian oil supplies is part of wider political discord between Russia and Belarus over forming a union.
    I wonder what Putins response would be if Lukashenka ever became so bold?

    With NordStream-2 not yet operational, Moscow needs the Druzhba oil pipeline to fulfill its European supply contracts.

    Think Crimean Peninsula!
    Attorney General William Barr: “The fact of the matter is that, in waging a scorched earth, no-holds-barred war of 'Resistance' against this Administration,
    it is the Left that is engaged in the systematic shredding of norms and the undermining of the rule of law.”

    I don't know. Lukashanka watched what happened to Ukraine in 2014.

    On paper the Belarus military is no pushover and trains regularly. However the government and military are no doubt highly populated with Russian GRU agents and sympathizers.

    I dunno'. Do you really have someone by the cajones, if they are far mightier than you and might be willing to flex their muscles?

    yes, but this is predictable development, Belarus is 30 years independent , it has had a major demographic shift , the majority have never lived under Muscovite occupation
