Russia suspends natural gas supplies to Finland

Kathmandu, May 22

Natural gas supplies to Finland were cut off by Russia on Saturday. Finland, in turn, has enraged Moscow by asking to join NATO. After Gazprom refused to pay in rubles, Moscow shut off the gas supply to Finland.

Following the Russian war on Ukraine on February 24, Moscow has asked that gas be paid in rubles by customers from nations such as the European Union (EU). Gas supplies have been cut off due to the non-receipt of rubles, according to a statement released by Russian energy corporation Gazprom on Saturday.

Gazprom exported 1.49 billion cubic meters of natural gas to Finland in 2021. This accounts for almost two-thirds of the country’s total gas consumption. Natural gas, on the other hand, contributes around 8% of Finland’s energy. The Baltic Connector Pipeline, according to Gasum, a Finnish energy provider, will help to relieve the shortage. Similarly, the operation of fueling stations has been guaranteed.
