MOSCOW, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Russia said on Thursday it had restarted the flow of oil through its main oil export pipeline after Belarus dropped an oil transit duty imposed last week and agreed to return oil Moscow said it had taken illegally.
“Belarus has fully returned 79.000 tonnes of oil. Transneft started to pump oil in the direction of Belarus at 0822 Moscow time (0522 GMT). Druzhba pipeline is working normally,” Sergei Grigoryev, vice president of Russian pipeline monopoly Transneft told Reuters.
