Brussels. The European Commission continues monitoring the development of the Russian-Belarusian gas relations, announced EC Spokesperson Marlene Holzner, cited by RIA Novosti.
Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said earlier today that Belarus will restrict oil and gas transit if Gazprom does not pay its debts. Minsk says Gazprom owes USD 260 million for gas transit and the Russian company paid USD 228 million, as it is written in the contract, according to Belarus.
Holzner says also that up to now the EC has received a confirmation for the resolution of the dispute neither from the Russian, nor from the Belarusian government. For now there are no problems in the natural gas deliveries for Poland and Lithuania.
