Belarus is in court to seek price reduction for Russian gas
Between Russia and Belarus planned serious gas dispute: Minister of energy Alexander Novak said that the debts of a neighbouring state for natural gas grow, and his Belarusian counterpart Vladimir Potupchik says that no there is no debt.

"There is a debt to "Gazprom" for gas delivered. Four months is more than $ 125 million. The figure is constantly changing, every day. In accordance with the contract there is a shortfall," he told reporters Novak.

Potupchik, in turn, denies the existence of the debt, but noted that Minsk does not agree with the gas prices dictated by Moscow.

"Belarus pays in accordance with the intergovernmental agreements. Here in court and we will deal with this issue. Russia believes that there is a price "Yamal", and we believe that from January 1, 2015 must act equal market prices", - said the Minister of energy of Belarus.

In the 2011 agreement stipulates that the price of Russian gas for Belarus is calculated in dollars as the aggregate amount of the price of gas in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, the cost of transportation to Belarus and Russian gas storage in underground gas storage facilities.

Minsk has announced that in 2016 is going to reduce the price, but negotiations on which countries have submitted Dvorkovich and Semashko, to no avail all were still.
