As per information released by the Bloomberg news agency, four of them have already repaid their debts to Russia and the next payments will be made after May 15th.

According to the TASS news agency, Uniper’s financial director, Tiina Tuomela, notified the Russian counterpart that they are discussing with the Berlin authorities the possibility of complying with the payment requirement in rubles.

In this regard, the official explained that the mechanism applied by Russia does not violate the terms of the sanctions imposed on Russia by the European Union after the start of the military operation in Ukraine on February 24th.

For his part, the Austrian Federal Chancellor, Karl Nehammer, said that Austria’s oil and gas company OMV accepted the Russian conditions for the payment for energy supplies.

The head of government pointed out that OMV has already opened an account in rubles at Gazprombank, as stipulated by the measures announced by Moscow on March 31st.
