The real target

It looks on the surface like Russia and Belarus were having serious disagreements on the price of gas delivered by Russia. Baring in mind, however, that Gazprom does whatever the Russian government is going to tell them to do and the fact that Belarus dictator Lukashenko practically eats from the hand of Russian dictator Putin, I would suggest that the whole point of the show is to demonstrate to EU how dependable they are on Russian gas supplies.

If the supplies will be disturbed in January, Russia is bound to soon tell the EU what they want to call off the comedy. At that point there will be no problem with reaching a settlement with Belarus. The Russians are really targetting EU, not Belarus which obeys Russian orders as it is.
