EXTRA Von der Leyen: Russian ‘roubles for gas demand in breach of contract

0

Brussels (DPA) – Russia’s demand that certain countries pay for Russian natural gas and oil in roubles is “a unilateral decision and a clear breach of contract,” European Commission chief Ursula von der
Leyen says.

This would be a unilateral decision and a clear breach of contract, and it would be an attempt to circumvent the sanctions,” von der Leyen said at the start of an EU summit in Brussels.

We will not allow our sanctions to be circumvented … the time when energy could be used to blackmail us is over,” she said.
