Russia has refused to sell gas for foreign currency

Austria does not intend to give up supplies of Russian oil and gas. This was stated by Chancellor Karl Nehammer at a meeting with journalists. According to him, such restrictions may weaken Austria, but not Russia.

“Sanctions only make sense if they weaken who they are for, not who they are. Nevertheless, it is a terrible feeling to depend on Russian gas. But my job is to ensure security of supply, ”Nehammer’s Kronen Zeitung reports.

The Chancellor added that Austria was waiting for written explanations from Gazprom on the transition to paying for gas in rubles. “Let’s not judge the ads, but the facts. OMV (Austrian oil and gas company – URA.RU) has not yet received any notification, “he said, adding that Austrian companies have currency contracts in euros until 2040.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that Russia would start selling gas to “unfriendly” countries for rubles. The list of unfriendly countries included sanctions against Russia due to the beginning of a forced special operation to demilitarize and denationalize Ukraine. Vladimir Putin said that the purpose of the sanctions was to abolish Russia, ban its culture, and taboo the truth about Russia’s history and its role in major world events. According to the VTsIOM poll, 76% of Russians supported the president’s decision. The refusal to pay for gas in dollars led to the strengthening of the ruble. The Kremlin noted that countries that do not pay for gas in rubles will stop receiving it.
