Belarus suspends oil pumping to Poland

Belarus suspends oil pumping in the direction of Poland for four days for scheduled work on the Druzhba oil pipeline. This was announced to reporters by the advisor to the president of “Transneft”, press secretary Igor Demin.

“From 12:00 today, Gomeltransneft will stop transportation for 96 hours in the direction of Adamova Zastava to carry out routine maintenance at the Belarusian section of Druzhba,” said Mr. Demin (quoted by Interfax).

At the end of May, the Polish Council of Ministers banned Belarusian air carriers from flying in the country’s airspace due to an incident with an emergency landing of a Ryanair plane. Note also that against this background, the EU Foreign Ministers did not rule out the introduction of sanctions against the chemical and oil refining sectors of Belarus.
