Gazprom agreed to pay $2.5 billion for a 50 percent stake in Belarus' pipeline company, which supplies gas to Poland and Germany.
Gazprom's directors approved buying the stake in state-owned Beltransgaz, the Russian company said Wednesday in a statement.
Belarus and Gazprom initially agreed on the pipeline sale on Dec. 31. The same day, Belarus agreed to pay $100 per 1,000 cubic meters for Russian supplies. (Bloomberg)
