epa09912384 Gazprom building on Moskovsky Prospekt in St. Petersburg, Russia, 27 April 2022. Gazprom has completely suspended gas supplies to the Bulgarian company Bulgargaz and the Polish PGNiG. The reason is due to their failure to pay in rubles in due time, it is said in a statement of the Russian holding.  On 23 March, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered that unfriendly states must pay for Russian gas in rubles, saying that Moscow would refuse to accept payments under gas contracts with those states in 'compromised' currencies, particularly meaning dollars and euros.
