Russia’s Gazprom will suspend gas supplies to Denmark on June 1 because it refused to pay for it in rubles, Danish energy company Orsted has confirmed.
– We have been preparing for this scenario so we expect to be able to deliver gas to our consumers – said Mads Nipper, CEO of Orsted.
The company said that since there is no pipeline going directly from Russia to Denmark, Russia will not be able to directly cut off gas supplies to Denmark so it will still be able to get to it.
– But that means that we will largely have to buy it on the European market – the company states.
Russia has already suspended gas supplies to Finland, Poland, the Netherlands, and Bulgaria after those countries refused to pay in rubles, according to CNN.
