Belarus’s threat to cut off gas supplies to Europe would be a breach of contract with Russia, President Vladimir Putin has warned.
In a TV interview, Mr Putin said President Alexander Lukashenko may have made the threat in a fit of temper.
Mr Lukashenko is facing new sanctions over a growing migrant crisis at the country’s western border with Poland.
EU officials have accused Belarus of provoking the crisis to undermine the bloc’ security, which it denies.
