The Russia-24 TV channel broadcast. During Lukashenko's meeting said that gas on border with the Smolensk region costs Belarus almost $130 for 1 thousand cubic meters whereas the price for consumers of this area is $70. "As for today's situation, it is that not the tariff, but the final price of gas which joins this tariff is important … I pay attention that today Republic of Belarus has $129 for one thousand cubes, next year there will be $127, and in Germany — $250. And this, certainly, big advantage to our allies on EurAsEC though, of course, we have to seek for full unification" — Putin commented on Lukashenko's statement. The President of Russia also noted that if Belarus had no current advantages within EEU, and the price of gas was formed by the market principles, then it would make $200, but not $129-127. According to Putin, unifikation of gas prices in EEU require time and other level of integration. "Vladimir Vladimirovich, is the calculations, wrong at you. We have the worst conditions, than Germany. I already not once said about it: it seems were at war against Germany together, and our people, yet not the dead after war, have such situation. They (Germany. — RNS) 200 have dollars … because there 3 thousand more kilometers should be swung therefore at them and the price such" — Lukashenko said. Putin, in turn, noted again that when pricing for gas by the market principles gas for Belarus would cost $200, but not $129 now. The head of state suggested to discuss this issue behind closed doors.
