There are major prerequisites for a decrease in the Russian gas prices after January 1, 2016, deputy PM Uladzimir Syamashka told journalists.
The idea has already been discussed with the Russian government and some details are still being cleared up. A Belarusian representative will soon leave for Moscow to discuss the issue, the deputy PM said.
The countries are planning to prepare the corresponding documents and agree on the gas price by December 21, Syamashka said.
Meanwhile, negotiations about oil and gas supplies to Belarus in 2016 are still in process, BELTA reports.
