"Yesterday I received information that at this difficult time Russia sells natural gas in Europe for up to $70: $65-68, but not for $127, as for Belarus. What are the circumstances and the situation here, what can we expect in the future? I brought up this issue at a video conference within the EAEU (Eurasian Economic Union), and in the near future we will have a conference in the same format. I would like to know what steps have been taken so far to reduce the price of natural gas for Belarus," the president said.
"This is not the case, I am not even talking about the year of the 75th anniversary (end of the Second World War) that Germany gets the natural gas for up to $70, as I have information, but not for $127, as for Belarus," Lukashenko added. ■
