Belarus in talks with Latvia over oil supply from Baltic ports

January 20/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- The leaders of Latvia and Belarus are discussing supplying oil to Belarus from Latvias Baltic Sea ports, reported Reuters with reference to Latvian Prime Minister Arturs Karins said.

"We are interested in starting such business," Karins said.

Russia suspended oil supplies to Belarus from Jan. 1, but partially restored them on Jan. 4. Two Russian oil firms, controlled by tycoon Mikhail Gutseriyev, supply Belarus with oil essential to minimum operations at its two refineries.

As MRC wrote before, Belarus state oil company Belorusneft suspended supplies of its own oil to Germany this month as Minsk needs to compensate for shortages of Russia-sourced oil amid a contract dispute with Moscow.
