"We have a bill economy, invoice creation. They require a lot of energy. And because we are obliged to take them abroad, in Russia. Prices for oil, gas, metals constantly grow.
For RF this situation very profitable. Backyard neighbor has a high cost creature. And not in vain, as the deficit in the trade of Belarus with Russia is constantly increasing. And if not for Russian loans, we will, I fear, in general may already be in the pit. Approximately 70% of the loans, which gained Belarus — from Russia.
Besides Belarus uniformly loses Russian market. And it happens not as Presidents 2-states are friends or not friends. Economic laws. Inhabitants of, for example, are increasingly taking shall be removed Belarusian refrigerators and televisions.
