Now the number of firms willing to pay for gas in rubles has grown to 20. At the same time, as informs Bloomberg, citing a source, another 14 companies have requested the documents necessary to open an account, the report says.

Earlier it was reported that already ten countries The EU opened accounts in a Russian bank to pay for natural gas under the scheme proposed by the Russian Federation. Hungarian Prime Minister Gergely Guiyash said this on Rádió Kossuth.

“Hungary opened an account in euros, to which the price of gas in euros is credited, and then the bank converts it into rubles … Besides us, nine other countries do this, but they do not say that they are doing the same, simply because in Europe now “ to be good for Europe” means that the leadership of the country does not speak honestly with its people and in international life,” Gouyash said.

The head of the Chancellery once again reminded that the European Union has not adopted any sanctions that make it impossible to pay for gas in Russian rubles. And this is regulated by a civil law contract between states and companies.


Two EU countries no longer want to buy gas from Russia

At the same time, Poland and Bulgaria no longer receive gas from the Russian Federation. Gazprom sent a notice to the importing companies in Warsaw and Sofia to stop deliveries from April 27 due to their refusal to make final settlements in Russian rubles.
