MOSCOW, June 23 (Itar-Tass) - Gazprom has cut supplies of gas to Belarus by 60 percent, but gas transit through Belarus to Europe is effected in full, Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller said.
"We have two pieces of news. One is good, the other is bad. The transit of Russian gas through the territory of Belarus is effected in full, and the consumers of Russian gas have no problems with supplies," Miller said.
"The bad news is that Belarus is making no attempts to pay the debt for supplied gas. On June 23, at 10:00, Moscow time, Russia restricted the supplies of gas to Belarus by 60 percent. The restriction of supplies will continue in proportion to the outstanding liability," he added.
