Belarus will get $4.124 billion in subsidies as Russia supplies Minsk with duty-free oil, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Thursday following talks with his Belarusian counterpart Mikhail Myasnikovich.
"We will try to provide the Belarus oil sector with subsidies not less than those it received 2007-2009 before the introduction of oil export duties," Putin said.
"This sum amounts to $4.124 million. There are some questions concerning calculations, but we have confirmed our position."
