Belarus followed the example of Armenia

Belarus followed the example of Armenia

ArmInfo. Following Armenia, Belarus also turned to the Russian Gazprom with a proposal to lower gas prices.

According to the Minister of Energy of the Republic of Belarus Viktor  Karankevich, as BelTA agency reports, the issue of reducing the price  of Russian gas for Belarus in 2020 has been initiated. According to  the minister, it is obvious that global prices for energy resources,  including prices for natural gas, are falling now. In these  circumstances the Belarusian side approached PAO Gazprom with a  request to consider reducing the price for natural gas supplied to  Belarus in 2020, the minister said.

As a way to revise the price Belarus suggested buying certain amounts  of natural gas via commodity exchanges at competitive prices, Viktor  Karankevich noted.  Terms of implementing this mechanism will be  discussed at forthcoming negotiations with the Russian side, he  added.

The Belarusian energy minister was in the parliament on 9 April to  present a protocol on amending the Belarus-Russia intergovernmental  agreement on the procedure for setting prices (tariffs) on natural  gas import to Belarus and natural gas transportation via the gas  mains located in Belarus of 25 November 2011. The essence of the  document is to prevent financial terms of natural gas deliveries to  Belarus in 2020 from getting worse in comparison with last year.  The  protocol was ratified by the House of Representatives of the National  Assembly on 9 April.  The protocol extended the validity period of  the intergovernmental agreement through 31 December 2020. The  protocol is applicable to legal relations that emerged as of 1  January 2020.

To recall, earlier the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko and  the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan discussed the price of  Russian gas in a telephone conversation.
