Russia’s Gazprom halts gas supplies to Latvia

TEHRAN, Jul. 31 (MNA) – Russian gas producer Gazprom said on Saturday it had stopped sending gas to Latvia after violating supply conditions, a move the Baltic country said would have little impact on its gas supplies.

Russia has already cut off gas supplies to Poland, Bulgaria, Finland, the Netherlands and Denmark, which refused to pay for gas in line with an order by President Vladimir Putin requiring ruble accounts to be set up in a Russian bank.

Russia has also halted gas sales to Shell Energy Europe in Germany, The Guardian reported.
