Gazprom confirms halting gas supplies to Poland, Bulgaria

Gazprom confirmed on Wednesday that it stopped supplying Poland and Bulgaria with gas as a result of the two countries' failure to pay for Russian gas in rubles.

The company added that the suspension will last until Russia receives payments in rubles.

Gazprom also stressed that, despite the halt, gas will continue to transit through both countries and warned that any "unauthorized withdrawal" from transit volumes to third countries result in Russia reducing the supplies to the countries by the same volume.
