German Finance Minister Christian Lindner advised German gas companies not to switch to paying for fuel supplies in rubles, which Moscow insists on.
“Contracts are contracts,” Lindner told Bloomberg Television on Wednesday. “Contracts are based on dollars and euros, and companies in the private sector have to pay in dollars or euros.”
He also said that Germany is ready for further sanctions against Russia. “We actively support all sanctions that serve to isolate Moscow politically and economically,” Lindner said.
