Belarus will buy two tankers of non-Russian oil a month, Prime Minister Sergei Rumas was quoted as saying by state news agency Belta on Wednesday, irrespective of Belarus' agreements with Moscow on oil supply.

Belarus and Russia have been locked in a dispute over oil supply and flows have slowed to a trickle since Jan. 1, while refineries in Belarus have been operating at 50% of capacity.
