MINSK, April 4. /TASS/. Russia promises to resume oil supplies to Belarus on the basis of 24 mln tonnes per year, Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus Vladimir Semashko said on Tuesday.
"Russia will resume oil supplies to the Republic of Belarus set forth in the current agreement, that is, 24 mln tonnes per year. Such volumes will be supplied from this year and until 2024 inclusive," the official said.
"18 mln tonnes out of 24 mln tonnes will be directed to refineries for processing until 2019 inclusive," Semashko said. "This is highly suitable for us and beneficial for refineries," he said. "6 mln tonnes will undergo "repeated customs clearance;" we invented such a term," Semashko added.
"It is important that duties from such repeated customs clearance will go to budget of the Republic of Belarus," he said.
