Russia's Gazprom sets time for Belarus gas cutoff, informs European clients

Russian state gas monopoly Gazprom will halt supplies to Belarus on Jan. 1 if no new contract is signed to end a price dispute and has warned European countries of potential problems with deliveries via Belarus, the Interfax news agency quoted the company's chief as saying Wednesday.
Gazprom, which is demanding Belarus pay more than twice the current price for gas next year and hand over a 50 percent stake in its gas distribution system, refused to back down after Minsk threatened to siphon off Russian natural gas bound for Europe in the event of a suspension of supplies to Belarus.
