UE advierte que el pago de gas ruso en rublos viola las sanciones

April 29, 2022 - La Unión Europea ha advertido a los compradores europeos que incurrirían en violación de las sanciones impuestas contra Moscú si aceptan las demandas del Kremlin de completar pagos en rublos.

The warning comes after several European companies indicated they would comply with a March 31 decree by President Vladimir Putin to introduce a two-tiered system for gas payments, according to The Financial Times.

This involves opening rouble and euro accounts at Gazprombank in Russia. Under existing payment arrangements, most European companies were paying in euros into Gazprombank’s Luxembourg-based accounts.

Companies and national energy regulators are now in the invidious position of breaching EU sanctions, or defying Moscow and having gas supplies possibly cut off. The EU gets about 40 percent of its gas from Russia and some countries are almost completely reliant, the FT said.
