TOL's Belarus Blog writes that the Russian gas monopoly Gazprom “is not going to tolerate Lukashenka’s bluff and proceeds from warnings to direct actions.”

    What else is new. This is typical Russian bullying of an ex-Soviet satellite country. Belarus was a strong friend of Russian and the gas pipe belongs to Belarus. Why must they give half to Russia? If Russia raises the price of gas Belarus should raise the transit city accordingly. If Russia shuts down all guess to Belarus I suggest Belarus to close the pipe. I hope Europe now gets the message and looks for a 2nd Ave for gas. Most likely in Africa.
