Payment in due form will be the basis for continuing supplies, the senior official told the media.

Asked about the possibility that President Vladimir Putin, might contact his counterparts in those countries to address the conflict over gas deliveries, Peskov replied that “there are no plans.”

He warned that Russia could stop delivering gas not only to Poland and Bulgaria, but also to other countries, if they do not pay in rubles.

As the date of payment approaches, if some consumers refuse to pay according to the new system, the president’s decree will, of course, be implemented, he stressed.

According to EU sources, the European Union will significantly and temporarily increase its purchases of Russian gas through countries willing to pay in rubles, which will make it possible to compensate for the suspension of supplies to Poland and Bulgaria.

An emergency meeting of the Gas Coordination Group was held today in connection with the situation in Poland and Bulgaria. An interim solution has been to increase purchases from Russia through continuous channels, which will allow Poland and Bulgaria to purchase more gas on the European market, the source told the TASS news agency.

According to the head of state, Russia will consider a violation of contracts, if the buyers of its gas, belonging to the group of countries considered unfriendly by Moscow, refuse to pay for it in rubles.
