Against this background, it became known that several Gazprom subsidiaries in Germany stopped receiving gas from Russia.
According to the American media, Gazprombank has already opened 20 accounts of European companies.
With their help, Russian gas consumers intend to pay for natural gas in rubles.
According to Bloomberg, citing informed sources, the same number of European companies that previously opened accounts with Gazprombank have joined the 10.
In addition, another 14 companies requested the necessary data to open accounts with Gazprombank in the future.
It is reported that such companies will pay for gas from Russia in foreign currency.
The names of 20 companies that have opened accounts with Gazprombank are not specified.
Against this background, it is reported that several subsidiaries of Gazprom’s former daughter Gazprom Germania GmbH do not receive gas after the introduction of sanctions against Western companies in Russia.
According to German Vice Chancellor and Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection Robert Habeck, the market is able to compensate for the shortage of gas from Russia, and Germany has found an alternative supplier. At the same time, he did not specify the details, writes TASS.
Earlier, topNews wrote that Gazprombank did not accept payments for gas in rubles for Austria and Germany. According to media reports, ruble payments from Gazprom Germania were rejected.
