The smuggling plans of the Belarusian power group are on the verge of total collapse.

Lukashenka does not care about jobs for Belarusians. He and his "businessman" Mikalai Varabei have an absolutely specific goal - to gain control over the "pipe" and the point of loading of diesel fuel into tank cars Gomel-3. This provides an opportunity to freely smuggle up to 8 million tons of petroleum products into Ukraine, the Minsk Heptarchy telegram channel writes.

We remind that in order to block the Belarusian oil products smuggling, Russia has introduced (by an intergovernmental protocol) an obligatory declaration of all oil products, delivered to the territory of Belarus. With the exception of the volumes that "go" by pipeline transport. Mikalai Varabei owns the Ukrainian part of the Prikarpat-Zapadtrans pipeline. After gaining control over the Belarusian part of the Transneft pipeline, the "gang" expects to be able to "smuggle" diesel with impunity. At the same time, they can evade obligatory customs declarations. Direct losses of the budgets of Belarus, Russia and Ukraine might reach hundreds of millions of dollars.

But then something unbelievable happened. Ukraine gave smugglers an unexpected surprise. Official Kiev seized and arrested the property of Prikarpat-Zapadtrans, including the "Ukrainian pipe" of Belarusian "oligarch" Varabei . Although it is obvious to everyone that Varabei is not an oligarch. He is one of the regular managers of Lukashenka's personal assets. And the "Ukrainian pipe" is Lukashenka 's property. The smuggling plans of the Belarusian power-wielding group are on the verge of total collapse.

A very interesting "triangle" - Ukraine saves Russia's property from the Belarusian raider Lukashenka. Quite an unexpected geo-intrigue has taken place, however. It turns out that nothing is impossible when the interests coincide. But still it is hard to imagine why the Kremlin still tolerates all these antics of its illegitimate "ally"?
