Poland and Bulgaria reacted to the news about the end of Russian gas supplies

On Wednesday, April 27, Gazprom stopped gas supplies to Poland and Bulgaria, as these countries refused to pay for blue fuel from the Russian Federation in rubles.

The Russian concern notified colleagues from Bulgargaz and the Polish company PGNiG about the suspension of gas supplies, since no payments were received from these companies as of April 26.

At the same time, Gazprom clarified that gas is transited through the territory of Bulgaria and Poland to European consumers. If these countries try to confiscate part of the fuel without authorization, supplies to Europe will be reduced by the amount of gas withdrawn.

Sofia and Warsaw reacted to the decision of the Russian side.

Bulgarian Energy Minister Alexander Nikolov stressed, adding that the country's gas reserves would last only a month.

The representative of the Polish government for strategic energy infrastructure, Piotr Naimsky, spoke on the air of one of the radio stations that Warsaw would no longer purchase gas from Russia. By 2025, the Poles plan to build a floating liquefied gas terminal in Gdansk.

At the same time, according to the information of the German operator Cascade, the volume of reverse transportation of blue fuel from Germany to Poland via the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline increased five times on April 27. And given this development of the situation, according to Bloomberg, ten European gas companies have opened special accounts with Gazprombank to buy Russian fuel for rubles.

    Reverse deliveries will be at spot prices, i.e. several times more expensive.
    The Germans will profit from everyone. Also, SP2 will be required to run

    If a fight is inevitable, then you need to hit first

    Can anyone give an answer other than the obvious one, why didn't the owners of the gas shut off the supply?

    the Poles messed up by demanding spot prices, and now, in order to get away from them, they decided to buy gas from the Hans, who pay according to the old formula, which means that the Hans must be converted to spot prices!

      The Hans do not need gas at all. Gazprom, by the way, has already rejected a couple of payments from this sausage-burger country. Which, although it hates Russia, is beginning to understand that all its well-being was based on cooperation with Russia. They, like the old fascists, instead of appreciating it, again believed in their "genius". And the hole of contrast will be very deep. And the Germans will turn (let them say "thank you" to the USA) into village fools near the broken fatherland ... And quickly.

    But this is curious, will these countries go the Ukrainian way? My prediction is they will try to go in the winter. Then the reaction of the European Union will be interesting

      The reaction is quite predictable - Russia violates contracts.
      It will be like with the selection of gas in Ukraine, carbon copy
