Russia on Tuesday reduced natural gas supplies to Belarus by 30 percent after Minsk failed to settle a debt, Gazprom chief executive Alexei Miller said.

"From 10 am on 22 June we are bringing in a reduction of 30 percent on the daily volume of supplies of Russian gas to Belarus," Miller said in televised remarks.

The company reduced gas supplies on Monday by 15 percent of the daily volume and Miller said the gas cuts would be increased to 85 percent in the coming days if a solution to the conflict was not found.
