Lithuania says gas froom Belarus back to normal

VILNIUS June 24 (Reuters) - Gas from Belarus is being shipped as normal to Lithuania, Lithuania's gas company said on Thursday after Russia and Belarus moved to solve a row over gas debts that had hit transit flows westwards.

"Natural gas imports to Lithuania have been completly restored within the last two hours. Gas is being sent under the usual regime," gas company Lietuvos dujos (LDJ1L.VL: Quote) said in a statement. Supplies had fallen by 40 percent on Wednesday.

It said gas was going to Lithuanian customers and onwards to the Russian region of Kaliningrad without restrictions.

Lithuania is the main route through which the Russian region, cut off from the rest of Russia, gets its gas.

Russia earlier said it had resumed gas supplies to Belarus and paid gas transit debts to Minsk. (Reporting by Nerijus Adomaitis; editing by James Jukwey)
