MOSCOW, June 21 (Itar-Tass) -- Russia's gas utility Gazprom has cut gas supplies to Belarus by 15 percent starting from 10:00 a.m. Moscow time on Monday, Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller said.
According to Miller, gas supplies will be further reduced up to 85 percent.
"The five-day term given to Belarus to repay its debts for Russian gas has expired. The debt has not been repaid, so staring from 10:00 a.m. Moscow time on June 21, 2010, daily supplies of Russian gas to Belarus are reduced by 15 percent and will be further limited to 85 percent, i.e. in proportion to the debt," he said.
