It is noted that Lukashenka first of all inquired about the work of oil refineries, as well as the completion of the modernization of two Belarusian refineries and, if there are problematic issues, what are their causes.

In general, the head of state was interested in how the country’s petrochemical complex is adapting to the sanctions regime.

“We all say: ‘Oil, oil’. Petrochemicals, chemical products. How do enterprises work? Even if there are not many of them, they are powerful, large. The same thing: what happens at these enterprises? How are sales and exports going?” the president asked.

Lukashenka also drew attention to “a considerable layer of problems” in import substitution, stressing that this is a topic that also concerns Belneftekhim. The Belarusian leader raised the issue of developing cooperation with Russia “on the formation of a single territory for oil and gas.”
