MINSK (Reuters) – Belarus state energy company Belneftekhim said on Sunday it had partially resumed oil transit towards Poland and that its daily Western-bound transit plan for June was 65,000 tonnes.

Belarus has so far returned 450,000 tonnes of contaminated oil to Russia, Belneftekhim said in a statement, adding it expected to complete the clean-up of a pipeline between the Mozyr refinery and Unecha station in Russia by mid-August.
