Lukashenko Demands Russia Sell Gas at Same Price as Europe

The price of Russian natural gas for Belarus should be lowered since, “in this difficult time”, Russia sells it to Europe priced at $70 per thousand cubic meters, while Minsk continues to buy at $127, President Alexander Lukashenko said on Thursday, RIA Novosti reported.

According to Sputnik Belarus, the Belarusian leader on Thursday received Prime Minister Sergei Rumas with a report.

“I learned yesterday that Russia sells natural gas to Europe, in these tough times, at up to $70, at $65-68, but certainly not $127, like to Belarus. What kind of situation is it, and what can we expect in the future? This is not right, especially given that this year marks the 75th anniversary [of victory in World War II], and Germany buys natural gas at up to $70 … certainly not $127,” Lukashenko said.
