MINSK, November 30 (Itar-Tass) —— Minsk expects to receive 2.5 billion U.S. dollars for the sale of Beltransgaz’ 50-percent stake already next week, Belarusian Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Rumas told reporters on Wednesday.
“As far as I know the position of Gazprom, they will not delay the case [payment]. And money will be transferred already next week,” he said.
“The funds will be fully transmitted to the Belarusian gold and foreign currency reserves,” the deputy prime minister said.
