Russia will limit Belarus in the gas.
Belarusian colleagues continue to pay for gas last year's price set Beltransgaz unilaterally.
Yesterday, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev at a meeting with Gazprom head Alexei Miller said that Belarus is given five days to pay the debt for Russian gas. The president said that "if to do so would then have to apply strict measures."
July 21, Gazprom may limit potavki gas to Belarus in proportion to the size of its debt.
Debt Belarus to Russia for the resulting gas is about $ 200 million. Belarusian colleagues unilaterally continued to pay for gas last year's price.
Belarus pays about $ 150 for 1 thousand cubic meters, while the contract price (calculated on a formula linked to European prices) provide for payment in the first quarter to $ 169 for 1 thousand cubic meters, the second - for $ 184 .
Similar differences between the parties arose in the past year. Then eventually Belarus fully repaid debts for Russian gas, paying Gazprom $ 244 million
