“Gasprom’s decision to cut off gas supplies to some EU member states is another aggressive unilateral move by Russia,” Charles Michael wrote on his official Twitter account.
He noted that he was in touch with the Polish Prime Ministers, Mateusz Morawiecki, and Bulgaria’s Kiril Petkov, and assured that the EU member states would remain united until they fully liberate themselves from Russian power.
“We will stand together and support each other when Russia gradually stops importing energy,” he wrote.
This morning, the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, assured the European Union that Russia was “ready” for a gas cut because it was working to “ensure alternative supplies and better storage conditions across the EU.” ”, Member states have established contingency plans.
“Gazprom’s announcement that it is unilaterally suspending the supply of gas to customers in Europe is another attempt by Russia to use gas as a threatening tool. [mas] We are ready for this situation, “said Van der Leyen.
The Russian group Gazprom today announced that it has suspended all gas supplies to two European bloc member states, Bulgaria and Poland, for failing to pay in rubles.
In a statement, Gazprom said it had notified the Bulgarian company Bulgargaz and the Polish company PGNiG “to suspend gas supplies from April 27 until payment in rubles.”
On the same day that the Bulgarian Prime Minister is scheduled to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zhelensky in Kiev, the Russian state oil company Gosprom has already made progress in suspending gas supplies to Bulgaria from today.
Bulgaria joins Poland in announcing today that Russia will suspend gas supplies from today, in the face of a refusal to pay in rubles, as requested by the management of Moscow-controlled Gazprom.
