Gazprom announced the suspension of gas supplies to Latvia

PJSC "Gazprom", within the framework of the July application of Latvia, due to violations of the conditions for the selection of natural gas, stopped the supply of important energy raw materials to this country. The Russian company announced this on the morning of July 30 in its Telegram channel.

Today, PJSC Gazprom stopped gas supplies to Latvia as part of the July application, due to violation of the conditions for gas withdrawal

- says the communique.

It should be noted that from April 1, countries unfriendly to the Russian Federation must pay for Russian blue fuel in rubles. A number of Eastern European countries refused to pay in Russian currency, including Latvia.

On July 14, the Saeima of Latvia amended the legislation. According to new amendments from local "patriots", from January 1, 2023, the Baltic country will completely stop purchasing "totalitarian" gas from the Russian Federation and diversify supplies.

On July 28, the head of the Latvian company Latvijas gaze, Aigars Kalvitis, said that Latvia is now purchasing Russian blue fuel, but not from Gazprom, since it cannot pay it in rubles, but from another supplier (an unnamed intermediary), with whom it pays in euros for energy raw materials. Moreover, over the past month, Latvia has exported one terawatt-hour of gas from the Russian Federation.

Moreover, from whom Latvijas gaze buys gas, even the Ministry of Economy of Latvia does not know. At the same time, in early July, Latvijas gaze warned of an increase in tariffs this month for households in the country for using gas in the range from 65,6 to 89,9%.

In this regard, PJSC Gazprom's actions are absolutely lawful. We remind you that until 2022, Latvia spent up to 400 million euros per year on gas imports. In 2021, about 90% of the gas purchased by Latvia came from Russia. In 2020, PJSC Gazprom exported 1,6 billion cubic meters of gas to Latvia, and in 2019 – 1,7 billion cubic meters.

    Countries unfriendly to the Russian Federation should not receive it at all until they make friends.

      So not only do they get it, they also get it for free.

    Somehow the West forgot that it is possible to produce gas from manure and human shit. The latter is in abundance. I feel sorry for the Baltics, so I will try to save them with good advice.

    Now turn on your brain. Latvia's GDP for 1021 is 38.87 USD billion. 400 lemons do not play any role. Question - where is the loot from? And the printing press in the United States is spinning to its fullest. Do you think why any mention of the US national debt has disappeared from all foreign media? There aren't even enough numbers. It's simple - the United States is throwing up cut paper, having gone all out. For they hit or miss. And they throw up cut paper not for nothing - only for dirty tricks towards Russia. As soon as the dirty tricks end, so Latvia flies the next day into the pipe. And the Americans promised all the tribalts of Russian slaves and Russian lands. Do you remember Kemska volost? Wow, that's the one. They say, let's all of you fall in unison, Russia is big, there is enough land for everyone, and you will get it, "from mozha to mozha." I will reassure them - the Americans were right - all of them will get the Russian land. 2x1x1,5 meters each.
