Russia says it is resuming gas supplies to Belarus since Belarus has paid its debt for previous deliveries.
A spokeswoman for President Dmitry Medvedev said the head of state-controlled Gazprom, Aleksei Miller, informed the president in a phone call today that Belarus has "fully paid" its debt and that the gas company would resume supplies.
Gazprom this week reduced deliveries to Belarus by 60 percent as a dispute over unpaid bills between the two sides escalated.
On June 23, Belarus said it had paid $187 million to Russia to cover the debt.
Belarus also threatened to shut down pipelines carrying Russian gas and oil to European markets across its territory unless Gazprom paid $260 million Belarus says the company owes it in transit fees.
