🇷🇺🇫🇷 - Gazprom totally cut gas deliveries to France's Engie on Thursday. First total cut by Russia to Europe, as some pro-Europeans were still hoping economic damage to Russia caused by sanctions would prevent it from happening.
🇷🇺⚡️Putin has reportedly set a deadline to switch to Rubles for natural gas exports by March 31, he reportedly told Gazprom and Russia's central bank to prepare for the new measures.
Reminder that European leaders including Chancellor Scholz stated that this step is not possible as they have signed contracts which already list the currency to be used for Russian gas payments which is the US Dollar.
