Head of EC: ruble payments for gas to be sanctions circumvention

Ruble settlements for Russian gas by European companies will circumvent sanctions, and will also pose a high risk for them, the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen said.

She noted that the requirement of Russian President Vladimir Putin to pay in rubles for gas supplies is currently being discussed by the EU member states.

"We have conducted a detailed legal analysis of the adopted decree, we believe that the proposal for a currency exchange will not only pose a risk to companies, but will also circumvent existing sanctions", RIA Novosti quoted her.
