Non-CIS carriers might have to buy fuel at higher prices in Belarus

MINSK. February 17. KAZINFORM Transport companies which are not residents of the CIS might have to buy fuel at higher prices in Belarus.

The relevant draft resolution will be worked out by the order of the Council of Ministers, BelTA learned from the press service of the Belarusian government following the session to discuss sales of automobile fuel and road services.

"There is an order to work out a draft resolution to sell fuel to transport companies which are non-residents of the CIS at higher prices. The document also provides for measures to prevent violations," the press release of the press service reads.

Moreover, in the near future, a draft document which envisages special requirements for the deployment of petrol stations at the major national motorways will be developed.
