The President of Belarus has accused Russia of unfair competition
The head of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko has accused the Russian Federation in unfair competition, the Agency “BelTA”.
Lukashenka believes that Russia is behaving “brutally” in relation to Belarus. In particular, Russia has not fulfilled commitments in the framework of the Eurasian economic Union (EEU).
“We are now having a hard time the Russians behave savagely towards us, publicly talking about it. They (the Russians – ed.) we need something like we’re vassals they have, and in the framework of the EEU, where they invited us, they fulfil their obligations do not want”, – said the President of Belarus and added that Russia is creating an uncompetitive situation.
He stressed that Moscow accuses Washington and Western countries in creating the “uncompetitive advantage”, although it itself creates such conditions for his country.
“This is the theme of our conversation with the President of Russia. But we have to work in those conditions, which exist today… We’re backed with the West are different “classes lexionary”, etc., and we are caught, unfortunately, in the East of our elder brother, who behaves in unfair competition,” – said Lukashenko.
We will note, earlier the Reuters Agency reported that from October Russia suspends duty-free supplies of oil products and liquefied gas in Belarus. It was noted that Russia had initiated the discontinuation of this practice on the grounds that the losses of the Russian budget in terms of increasing the volume of their export.
