MOSCOW, April 5. /TASS/. The discount on gas for Belarus, which will be effective from 2018, has already been determined and will be announced in the coming days, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich told reporters.
"You will find out in the next few days, it has already been determined, legal procedures are simply being completed," he said.
On April 3, after the meeting between Presidents of Russia and Belarus, Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko, it was announced that the oil and gas dispute between the two states had been settled.
According to the agreement, Belarus will repay the debt to Gazprom in the amount of more than $700 mln. In response Russia will increase duty-free oil supplies to Belarus from 18 million to 24 million tonnes and will provide a discount starting from 2018.
At the same time, Belarus and Russia will develop the rules for a single gas market by January 1, 2018.
