Russia and Belarus to decide on gas pricing from 2020
Russia and Belarus should elaborate proposals on gas pricing from 2020, First Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Anton Siluanov told reporters on Tuesday after the bilateral summit. “We have gas pricing – we should decide on this issue and work out proposals on pricing for this kind of energy, starting from 2020,” the official said. Belarus carried negotiations with Russia on reduction of natural gas prices since early 2016. The dispute was settled in April 2017. Gazprom provided a discount on the gas price for Belarus in 2018-2019. The price of Russian natural gas for Belarus equals $129 per thousand cubic meters in 2018 and $127 in 2019.
