MINSK, November 12 (Itar-Tass) — Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko is satisfied with the agreements on gas supplies from Russia.
The Belarusian leadership agreed with Russia “quite successfully on gas supplies for this year and 2013,” Lukashenko said in reply to questions of the students.
Speaking on the condition of the Ukrainian economy, the president noted that “it is worsening, because Kiev pays over 400 dollars for 1,000 cubic metres of Russian gas.” “Belarus receives Russian gas for 165 dollars on the border, there is some difference,” the president said.
Lukashenko noted that the same situation has emerged with Russian oil. “It is good that we also agreed on oil with Russia. We are selling our Belarusian oil for exports and are buying it from them for half a world price, because we do not pay customs duties,” Lukashenko underlined.
