Minsk still raises the question of compensation to the Belarusian oil refineries due to the tax maneuver in Russia. The plans revealed the Belarus Ambassador in Moscow Vladimir Semashko, writes TASS.
The issue of tax maneuver to be addressed, he said. “Different merely can’t be,” he said.
In an interview with “Izvestiya” Semashko said in Minsk consider that the tax maneuver is a serious violation of the agreements that were signed in the framework of the Russian-Belarusian and further Eurasian integration.
Russia remains the sole supplier of oil to Belarus. Minsk has the right to 24 million tons per year, and six million he is allowed to put on the re-export. In 2019, Russia began the so-called tax maneuver — a gradual zeroing of the export duty and raising the tax rate on mineral extraction. Minsk has estimated its losses in the period 2019-2024 years 10-11 billion dollars and demanded compensation.
