MINSK (Reuters) - Belarusian refineries received 2 million tonnes of oil in April, of which 1.56 million tonnes came from Russia, a spokesman for state energy group Belneftekhim told reporters on Wednesday.

Belarus, which had a dispute with Russia over oil prices earlier this year, plans to reduce its Russian oil imports to 1.13 million tonnes in May, the spokesman said.
