It will be preposterous to have different prices for Belarussian- and Russian-based companies when the joint venture appears, he remarked.
Belarus will import Russian gas from independent companies or the Gazprom, as the case may be, added the Premier.
He pointed out disputable matters on which the Parties have not agreed to this day.

Balance cost is an evaluation unknown anywhere in the world, market-oriented Russia being no exception, pointed out Mr. Sidorsky.
Belarus is choosing independent corporate auditors to evaluate Beltransgaz property, he said to Novosti in Minsk.
