Ukrtransnafta, the Ukrainian gas and oil pipeline operator confirmed that the intake of the Russian oil at Mozyr station in Belarus resumed. The company reported that Tuesday. 

Feneslitke station in Hungary confirmed it is ready to receive the cargo. As of 10.38 a.m. May 21, the raw oil transit to Hungary has been restored.

Another attempt was made to re-boot the transit, but it failed due to technical reasons.

Recently, Belarus suspended transit of Russian oil to Ukraine due to the absence of reservoirs of “dirty” oil on the territory of the country, as the press office of Belneftekhim concern reported.
