Later, the TV channel “Belarus 1” showed a fragment of the meeting, where Lukashenka says that the specific level of oil and gas prices for next year has not yet been determined. “I don’t know what the prices for oil and gas will be next year, but I will do everything so that the situation is not worse than this year.
