The Kremlin says: Payment for gas in rubles will not take effect on March 31
The new mechanism related to the payment of Russian gas in rubles will not be applied from March 31, as previously announced, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said today.
“It simply came to our notice then. “Payment and deliveries are a long process,” Peskov told reporters, answering the question whether the instruction to develop the mechanism by March 31 means that the new rules will come into force on the same day.
Peskov added that the mechanism of payment in rubles for “enemy countries” will be announced, adding that there is an order of the president of the state that will be implemented.
Earlier, it was announced that Russian President Vladimir Putin expects a report from the Cabinet of Ministers, the Central Bank and Gazprom on March 31 on the application of instructions on changing the currency when paying for gas supplies to “enemy countries”.
The Russian government, together with the Bank of Russia and the public joint-stock company Gazprom, should implement a set of measures to change the currency of payment to the Russian ruble to deliver natural gas to European Union countries and other countries that have imposed restrictive measures on Russian citizens and Russian companies.
When does the payment for gas in rubles start?
Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered that the payment for gas with countries that are not friendly be transferred to the ruble by March 31.
As of March 31, Putin expects a report from the Cabinet of Ministers, the Central Bank and Gazprom on the application of instructions on changing the currency when paying for gas supplies to countries that are not friendly, the Kremlin said.
The statement adds that the first report on the change in the currency of payment is expected on March 31, and then monthly, the RIA Novosti agency reported.
It imposed sanctions on Russian companies and individuals after the beginning of the Russian military invasion of Ukraine.
