Belarus on Monday warned Europe of possible disruptions in the transit of Russian natural gas to European consumers due to the current dispute with Russia over gas debts.

Belarus on Monday warned Europe of possible disruptions in the transit of Russian natural gas to European consumers due to the current dispute with Russia over gas debts.

Russian energy giant Gazprom started reducing gas supplies to Belarus on Monday over the ex-Soviet country's debt of about $200 million, starting with a 15% cut in daily deliveries that is to gradually rise to 85%.

"Further cuts of gas supplies by the Russian side may lead to technical reduction of gas transit to Europe," the Belarusian Energy Ministry said in a letter to Anne Houtman, a top official in the European Commission's Directorate General for Energy and Transport.

The letter also said the situation meant Belarus had restricted gas consumption for a number of its industrial enterprises.
