In an interview with "Freedom," she said, that "the trip was a secret character." But did we agree on something?
"There is a negotiation procedure. It’s just was the next step is to estimate, look, calculate. The initial agreement was last year, when we entered into an agreement until 2011 "- says Filimonov.
First deputy minister of energy Edward Tovpenets Pronunciation:
"Positions are being cleared. There is a contract, defined formula that cost should be calculated. Should be verified by the characteristics of the price, as there are many components that require documentary evidence."

With all this economist sure that Belarus should possible quickly go to the usual European gas prices:
"A cheap gas — a drug for the economy. This is the philosophy of the 1990s, the philosophy of mediocrity. Rather weak if the government does not own programs vkladyvatelnyh has no idea how to get out of this situation, it begins to put on the negotiating part of their own supplies and expect prices will go down.
