Hungary to continue receiving Russian gas

The Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Wednesday that the country will convert euros into rubles in Gazprombank in order to comply with Russia's request to pay for its gas in rubles.

Szijjarto added that Hungary's gas supply remains secure and noted the payment will be made on May 22.

The comments come after Poland and Bulgaria said Gazprom informed them it will halt gas supplies to the two countries over their refusal to pay in rubles. THe Hungarian minister stressed that, despite the halt of supplies to Bulgaria, Russian gas will continue to transit through the country towards Hungary.
