Right: Russia threatens to cut off gas

Pay in rubles, otherwise the gas will turn off.

The warning came tonight from Russia, according to Foreign Policy employee Samuel Ramani.

The warning from Russia is directed to European countries that depend on Russian gas. He urged them to pay transactions in rubles, otherwise Russia will stop the gas, Ramani reported on Twitter.

– If these countries refuse to pay in rubles, this will certainly cut off the supply. We are clear here, says Russian actor Ivan Abramov, according to Ramani.


Russia has previously warned of the consequences of non-payment of payments in rubles. Already last week, the dictatorship indicated that gas supplies could be halted if this did not happen.

Unmistakable stop

Russian MP Ivan Abramov said, on Monday, that the refusal of the Group of Seven industrialized countries to pay the ruble will lead to an unambiguous halt in deliveries, the Russian news agency IRA reported, according to Reuters.

He refused the Russian demands

The energy ministers of the G7 countries rejected Vladimir Putin’s request to pay Russian gas imports from “unfriendly countries” in rubles.

The list of countries that Russia classifies as “unfriendly” is long. Among others, all countries of the European Union, the United Kingdom and the United States are on the list.


The Russian demands for payment in rubles are based on the precarious situation in which the country’s economy finds itself. By paying in rubles, the Russian currency, which is under severe pressure, can be strengthened.

The energy supply of many European countries depends on imports of Russian gas. Germany, which receives just over 55 percent of its gas imports from Russia, has warned that an immediate halt would hit Europe and Germany hard.

“Stopping Russian energy from one day to the next would mean that our country and the whole of Europe would end up in a recession,” German Chancellor Olaf Schulz said after last week’s EU summit, according to the Guardian.
