German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has stated that Western countries are still paying in euros and dollars despite Moscow’s threat of cutting supplies if they are not paid for in rubles.

“We looked at the contracts for the gas deliveries,” Scholz told reporters in Berlin.

 “ The contract says that payments are made in euros, sometimes in dollars… and I made it clear in my conversation with the Russian president that that will remain the case,” he added, citing his talks by phone with Putin on Wednesday.
