Belarus cuts Russia gas transit, EU says affected

Belarus moved to cut the transit of Russian gas to Europe on Tuesday in a debt spat with Moscow, with Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko calling it a "gas war" echoing Russia's 2009 quarrel with Ukraine.


The EU said Lithuania, Poland and Germany had been hit by the gas supply cuts, but Russia said it had no confirmation that gas levels leaving Belarus had been reduced. (Reuters)
