MOSCOW, June 21 (Itar-Tass) -- Russia and Belarus did not agree on the gas price, Gazprom spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov told reporters on Monday.
"No progress was made," he stated in the comments on the Russian-Belarusian gas talks. "The deadline for 85% gas supply cuts to Belarus depends whether or not our Belarusian colleagues will take a constructive position," he underlined.
The Russian gas major Gazprom is ready to use the Ukrainian gas transit routes to Europe in case of gas siphoning in Belarus, Kupriyanov said.
"We can use fully the gas transit routes through Ukraine," he said. "We hope this will not happen," Kupriyanov added.
