Hungary continues to receive Russian gas, although Gazprom has stopped gas supplies to Poland and Bulgaria


The supply will be stopped until payments are made, Gazprom said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has called on countries he described as “unfriendly” after the invasion of Ukraine to implement a scheme in which they will open an account with Gazprombank to make payments in euros or dollars for imports. natural gas, and these funds will be converted into Russian rubles.

Separately, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said that Hungary receives Russian natural gas under its contract with Gazprom, through Bulgaria and Serbia, and that Gazprom informed Budapest that deliveries transiting Bulgaria are managed separately.

“I want to assure everyone that stopping gas supplies to Bulgaria does not mean stopping supplies transiting Bulgaria,” Peter Szijjarto said on his Facebook page.

He added that Hungary’s next payment obligation for Russian natural gas is on May 22 and the country will transfer its payment in euros to Gazprombank, where the amount will be converted into rubles.

Poland, whose contract with Russia expires later this year, has repeatedly said it will not abide by the new Russian gas payment scheme. The Warsaw authorities also announced that they would not extend the contract with Gazprom.

Poland’s contract with Gazprom provides for the delivery of 10.2 billion cubic meters of gas per year and covers about 50% of national consumption.

PGNiG said on Tuesday that it would take steps to restore gas supplies under the Yamal contract and that any supply shutdown was a breach of contract. The Polish company added that it has the right to claim compensation in case of breach of contract. AGERPRES
