Managing analytical center Mezisa Yaroslav Romanchuk said our radio:
"Such a sharp increase can be explained with 2 reasons. First — the price of oil and gas, which gets Belarus from Russia have increased in comparison with the beginning of last year. And second — in shipments energoelementov our country also increased.
If these rates continue, according to the results 2008 negative balance of trade with Russia on a theoretical level could rise to 15 billion dollars, compared with 8 billion in Last year. But I do not think that it will grow twice as much as the results of the 1st month will not be eligible to capture this trend. That the deficit in This year grow, I have no doubt, but its growth as I think, is smallest than twice. "
