A tanker carrying Iranian oil to Belarus has arrived in the port of Odessa. On board is about 80,000 tons of black gold.
This hydrocarbon consignment is intended for processing at Belarusian plants. Already this week the cargo will arrive at the Mozyr Oil Refinery.
Belarus started to search for alternative ways for oil supply after Russia cuts supplies in connection with a price dispute. President Alexander Lukashenko instructed to find alternative sources of oil in January 2017.
