Putin: Unfriendly countries to pay gas in rubles

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that "unfriendly countries" will have to pay for Russian gas in rubles.

Putin stressed that Moscow intends to continue supplying Europe with gas in accordance with volumes and prices specified in contracts.

The comments come after the European Union said it intends to shift away from Russian gas and possibly even target the country's energy sector with sanctions over Moscow's intervention in Ukraine.
