“We still adhere to the position that in the conditions of the implementation of the tax maneuver and the annual increase in the cost of oil for Belarus due to the reduction of customs duty, paying a premium to Russian oil companies in the amount that we agreed to do in 2011 does not make any sense today . It’s just not economically feasible, ”he said.

“The negotiations will continue, and I hope a solution will be found,” Krutoy concluded.
