Russia Cuts Off Gas to Poland and Bulgaria

HeadlineApr 27, 2022

Russia has cut off natural gas supplies to Poland and Bulgaria as tension over the war in Ukraine continues to escalate. The Russian company Gazprom said it suspended gas delivery because both countries refused to begin paying in rubles. The president of the European Commission accused Russia of using gas as an “instrument of blackmail.” Both Poland and Bulgaria rely heavily on Russian gas.
Meanwhile, a series of explosions occurred inside Russia this morning in three provinces bordering Ukraine. At least one of the blasts occurred at an ammunition depot.
