Gas price for Belarus became a stumbling block — Lukashenko was indignant that it is higher, than in-Russian. However, then the Belarusian leader apologized for a discussion in "a bad form". What did Putin answer? Alexander Lukashenko and Vladimir Putin. Photo: Mikhail Mettsel / TASS Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko argued because of gas price. It occurred in St. Petersburg at the summit of the Eurasian Economic Union. A dispute there began the president of Belarus. He, and, not for the first time complained that internal Russian gas prices are much lower, than for Belarus. But at the same time the countries aspire to a common economic space including to power, Alexander Grigoryevich noted. Vladimir Putin answered Lukashenko, having cited as an example the prices of the Russian gas for Germany. From St. Petersburg the Russia-24 TV channel broadcast: Alexander Lukashenko: "The operating pricing order on the natural gas delivered to Belarus: the tariff applied by Gazprom to the Belarusian side on transportation of gas from the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Area to our border makes nearly 3 dollars for one thousand cubic meters on 100 kilometers while an in-Russian tariff — about one dollar, three times less. Taking into account these circumstances gas on border with the Smolensk region costs our country almost 130 dollars for one thousand cubes, and the established wholesale price for consumers of the same Smolensk region of subjects of managing — 70 dollars. Almost twice lower. Simple question: how to compete in this situation?" Vladimir Putin: "Not the tariff is important, and the final price of gas which joins this tariff is important. And here you are right, it is necessary to think of it, of course. But I pay attention that today Belarus has 129 dollars for one thousand cubes. Next year will be 127, and in Germany — 250. And this, certainly, big advantage to our allies on EurAsEC though, of course, we have to seek for full unification. But for this purpose time and other level of integration between our countries is necessary". However Alexander Lukashenko on it did not calm down and reminded that the main partner of Belarus is not Germany, but Russia. And again started talking about equal conditions for the brotherly countries. Putin in reply cited as an example again Germany. And then Lukashenko remembered the Great Patriotic War: Alexander Lukashenko: "Our main partner, unfortunately or fortunately, not Germany, but Russian Federation. And our main not only partners, and competitors and other are Russians. If we manufacture in Belarus the tractor "BelAZ", "MAZ" and so on, all speak — here the Belarusian products. That you knew, in these Belarusian products, you know it, we discussed, and in the village at me discussed this issue, 60-70% of accessories of the Russian Federation therefore our main partner not Germany, but the Russian Federation. And it is necessary to us that there were equal conditions, first of all, of our brotherly Russia and Belarus. Here in what a question". Vladimir Putin: "Just I pay attention that today already our partners
