«Gazprom» stopped gas supplies to Latvia as part of the July application due to violation of the conditions for gas withdrawal, the company's press service reported.
The head of the Latvian gas company Latvijas Gaze, Aigars Kalvitis, said the day before, on July 29, that the company continued to buy Russian-made gas, but not from Gazprom, but through an intermediary.
In mid-June, Latvian Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins promised not to resume imports of Russian gas, calling for a way to impose sanctions on supplies. He noted that due to the decision of most European countries to continue buying Russian gas, official Moscow can still finance a special operation in Ukraine and support the ruble.
Latvia refused to receive Russian gas in early April after deciding not to comply with Moscow's demands to use a new format for paying for supplies with the opening of a ruble account with Gazprombank. This scheme applied to countries that the Russian authorities had previously identified as unfriendly, the list included all EU countries, Ukraine, Micronesia, Singapore and others.
Now gas is supplied to Latvia through Klaipeda liquefied natural gas terminal and Inčukalns underground gas storage.
