According to sources, the Vatican has taken all the necessary steps, which are included in the algorithm for buying gas in rubles. The method of purchasing energy resources in Russian currency was previously defined by the Government of the Russian Federation.
Earlier, the G7 countries did not agree with the demand made by Russia to pay for energy resources in the national currency.
In response, the Kremlin said that the Russian Federation was not going to engage in “pan-European charity” and supply free gas to the West.
State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said that European countries have all the market opportunities for payments in rubles, “there is no tragedy in that.” He called on foreign partners to buy wood, metals, oil and other goods sold by the Russian Federation in Russian rubles.
