MINSK, 10 October (BelTA) – The indicative balance sheets provide for the delivery of 24 million tonnes of oil from Russia to Belarus in 2020, BelTA learned from Deputy Chairman of the Belarusian state petrochemical concern Belneftekhim Andrei Bunakov in the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus on 10 October.

The official said: “As for the volume of oil, the indicative balance sheets provide for the delivery of 24 million tonnes. The figure has not changed.”
