Gazprom explained that Poland’s reimportation volume is about 30 million cubic meters per day, which is almost exactly the same as Poland imported directly under a contract with Gazprom previously.

Gazprom said, “Payment for gas supplied after April 1 had to be made in rubles through a new account (designated by Russia), but by the 26th, gas for April from Polish gas company ‘PGNiG’ and Bulgarian gas company ‘Bulgargas’ We did not receive the supply payment in rubles,” he explained, explaining the reason for the supply interruption.
