On April 26, the Commissioner of the Polish Government for Strategic Energy Infrastructure, Piotr Naimsky, said that Warsaw refuses to pay for gas supplies from Russia in rubles and is ready for all possible risks. He added that Poland could even turn off the gas supply “at any moment” on its own.
On the same day, the Polish Foreign Ministry imposed sanctions against Russian companies, including against Gazprom, NOVATEK and Novatek Green Energy.
On March 23, Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed to transfer payments for gas into rubles for unfriendly countries, including the EU countries. The new gas payment scheme came into effect on April 1.
Nevertheless, already in mid-April, Putin noted that there were failures in paying for Russian oil and gas supplies to unfriendly countries. Thus, some EU countries have reported that they do not intend to pay for gas in rubles. French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz noted that this requirement violates contracts.
