According to the minister, the Austrian gas regulator and the Minister of Energy are following the developments of events in the region and analyzing the situation in the energy market in order to be able to provide an effective response.

The European countries refuse to pay for gas in rubles, but they must be careful not to suffer from the sanctions imposed on Russia, the Finance Minister added.

However, Brunner said he did not know how the Austrian oil and gas company OMV would react to Russia’s demand to pay for gas in its currency.

Recently, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered to transfer payments for gas supplies to unfriendly countries in rubles.

The statesman stated that Russia would refuse to accept payment for such contracts in committed currencies, including dollars and euros.

For his part, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Moscow is working on the details of delivering gas to hostile countries for rubles, but if Europe refuses to pay in them, Moscow will not do charity work or supply gas for free.
