The Belarussian side must promptly ink new contracts, so that full-scale gas deliveries could be resumed, they added.
On February 12 Trans-Nafta and Beltransgaz signed the latest contract for the delivery of 360 million cubic meters of Russian gas to Belarus.
Itera, which is yet another independent Russian gas supplier, stopped pumping gas to Belarus February 12.
For its own part, Gazprom stopped all gas deliveries January 1.
Talking to RIA Novosti, Trans-Nafta director general Vladimir Kondrachuk noted that Russia was merely exporting its gas via Belarus at this stage. This implies approximately 25 million cubic meters of gas every 24 hours; at the same time, Belarus needs about 60 million cubic meters of gas per day.
At the same time, Beltransgaz has notified the Russian side that it isn't responsible for gas transits due to lack of gas.
