BelTA reported earlier that on 19 April Belneftekhim registered a massive decrease in the quality of the Russian oil mixture Urals flowing in transit into the Druzhba oil pipeline. The concentration of organic chloride in oil exceeded standard thresholds dozens of times over.

In line with the agreements reached by the deputy premiers of Belarus and Russia, work is underway on compensation proposals.More about Economy
