BRUSSELS – The European Commission has no information that any European company paid for Russian gas in rubles, after Moscow asked foreign buyers to adhere to the payment mechanism by converting euros or dollars into rubles, European Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson said today.

“The Commission has no information on any country or private company willing to do so.”Simson said after arriving at the extraordinary meeting of European Union energy ministers in Brussels.

Gergel Gulias, head of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s cabinet, said on Sunday that Hungary was not the only EU member to have an account with Gazprom Bank and pay for Russian gas under a scheme introduced by Russia, except that they did not speak publicly.

As he explained, Hungary does not pay for Russian gas in rubles, but has opened an account in euros in Gazprom Bank, which converts euros into rubles into another account in rubles, the Hungarian agency MTI reported.

“Nine more countries use the same payment scheme. But since today the idea of ​​a good European means that the leaders of those countries are not honest when addressing the world or their citizens, the other nine countries will not say that they have done the same thing. “, said Gulijaš. Tanjug
