Today Moscow is cutting gas supplies to Belarus by another 15%. This came in a warning yesterday by a Deputy Gazprom CEO Alexander Medvedev. The deliveries will thus drop by 45% of the contractual amount.
The conflict flared up following Belarus's refusal to clear off its debt for the gas supplied, a debt that makes up some 200 million dollars.
The Belarusian President reacted by ordering the halting of Russian gas transit to Europe and by laying counterclaims.
Gazprom points out that Belarus still have to clear its debt, despite its decision to halt the gas transit to Europe.
