The tanker with Iranian crude oil for Belarus arrived in the Black Sea port of Odessa in Ukraine, deputy director general of Belarusian Oil Company Siarhei Hryb told BELTA.

The tanker has brought 80 000 tons of oil, of which the first batch will reach the refinery in Mazyr this week.

At the end of 2016, President Lukashenka ordered the government to diversify the shipment of oil to Belarus in order not to defend from Russia as the only supplier.
