First Deputy Prime Minister also said that all the Belarusian refineries were currently loaded with raw materials by 100%, and the plants had faced with the problem of how to recycle all the oil, coming from Russia and Venezuela. In general, according to him, the Belarusian oil refineries should recycle 22.8 million tons of Russian oil and 4 million tons of Venezuelan oil in 2011.
