MOLODECHNO, Belarus, September 30 (Itar-Tass) —— Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Friday that Russia’s gas price for Belarus would be much smaller next year.
“We have agreed to that with the Russian leaders. Belarus will have much smaller gas prices next year,” he replied to an Itar-Tass question.
Lukashenko said he had discussed the issue at the latest meeting with Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller. Belarus will become a part of the Common Economic Space on January 1, 2012, Lukashenko said. “We paid a high price for the Common Economic Space,” he said, adding that the project was partially responsible for the latest shocks on the Belarusian currency market (plenty of vehicles were imported to Belarus before the anticipated growth of customs duties).
