Belarus has paid for its May supplies of Russian gas, Belarusian Energy Ministry spokeswoman Lyudmila Zenkovich said on Tuesday.
"Without waiting for Gazprom to pay for the transit of Russian gas through the territory of Belarus, Belarus has paid in full for the Russian gas supplied to it in May," Zenkovich said.
She did not give any details, however, as to what price had been paid.
Belarus refuses to pay the Russian gas price, set at $169 per 1,000 cubic meters for the first quarter of the year and $185 for the second quarter, and has been paying $150 since Jan. 1 instead.
