Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev thinks that Minsk should value the support it receives from Moscow. reports citing Russian media.

"In fact, we are helping them [Belarus], by taking money from our economy. They should value that when reflecting on (our) allied relationship," he said at a meeting with his deputies.

According to Medvedev, Russia continues to provide credit support to Belarus, which already surpasses $6.5 bln.

This does not include the loan allocated for the construction of a nuclear power plant.

"We do not demand repayment of these loans, we will extend these loans at the request of our partners given conditions, when Western financial markets are closed to us," he stressed.

Speaking about the tax maneuver, Medvedev admitted that it did affect "some of Russia’s neighbors," although it was Moscow’s sovereign decision.

"Of course, we understand their concerns and carry on negotiations," the prime minister noted. At the same time, he pointed out that Russia had never made a promise to other countries to reimburse lost revenue even due to the tax maneuver.

"We never promised to compensate for the lost income of other countries, even those closest, though in some cases over recent years, at the request of these states, we have provided them with various irrevocable support," he stressed.
