    Moscow and Minsk are continuing consultations on the price of Russian gas for Belarus with agreement is yet to be reached, Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Saturday, Russia's energy giant Gazprom said the lowering of gas prices for Belarus is unreasonable, as the contract price formula only includes gas production and transportation costs.

    "We are holding consultations, obviously, we have agreed on nothing yet," Dvorkovich told journalists.

    In early April, Belarus Prime Minister Andrei Kobyakov told RIA Novosti that the Russian gas price for Belarus should be $80 per thousand cubic meters, instead of the current $142.
