The stoppage of pumping fuel through Druzhba Minsk explained by an accident on the oil pipeline.

Transneft spokesman Igor Demin told the media that the Belarusian Gomeltransneft, which operates oil pumping to Poland via the Druzhba pipeline, has stopped fuel supply since November 16.

So far, only about the three days for which the transfer was stopped.

According to TASS, the official reason for the suspension of fuel supply was explained by the fact that unscheduled repairs are being carried out on one of the pipeline branches.

Also, according to Demin , there were no changes in the plans for pumping for a month.

It is known that the GP & # 8220; Friendship & # 8221; oil is supplied to refineries in Belarus, from where fuel is supplied to Europe.

Beginning & # 8220; Friendship & # 8221; takes in the Samara region of Russia, then it passes to the Bryansk region and then, along different branches, goes to Belarus, Ukraine, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Hungary, Lithuania and Latvia.

Recall that & # 8220; scheduled repairs & # 8221; began against the background of a political crisis in relations between Poland and Belarus, which was caused by the migrant crisis on the border of the two states.

So, according to Warsaw, there are 12,000 & # 8211; 15 00 refugees from Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries of the Middle East.

According to media reports, about 4,000 people gathered at the border itself.

As Topnews wrote earlier, the President of Belarus has already warned that could shut off the Yamal gas pipeline & # 8211; Europe in case the European Union decides to introduce new restrictive measures against its country.

Commenting on Lukashenko's intentions, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed the hope that things would not come to this and promised to talk with his Belarusian counterpart.
