Latvia’s response for Russia’s gas cutting

Latvian officials have reassured homes & businesses that there will be no major interruption to energy security after Russia’s choice to wipe out gas supplies to the country.

“Today, Gazprom stopped its gas supplies to Latvia specified in the July request due to a violation of the conditions established for gas withdrawal.” Gazprom stated.

It is known that the purported breaches were associated to the country’s plan to not pay for Russian gas in roubles.

“Latvia does not count on gas flows from Russia”, Latvia’s Economy Minister Ilze Indriksone stated.

“We have already done preliminary work in time and prioritised gas flows from the Klaipeda terminal, we are also working in other directions of deliveries so that gas heating is provided to the residents in the winter season.”

The previous week, EU countries devoted to a voluntary cut of natural gas needs by 15% this winter.
