Russia to reduce gas supplies to Belarus

Russia's state-controlled gas monopoly said Wednesday that it will reduce natural gas supplies to Belarus by 45 percent as of Friday after Minsk failed to pay in full for previous gas shipments.

this is for a missed outstanding payment, at least officially, but as my wife says, with russians, look nothing is ever on the surface of what they say they are doing. They like to think they're more clever than they are, so sayeth she.
