Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has called an emergency meeting with ministers in charge on Wednesday after Russian energy giant Gazprom halted natural gas supplies to Poland and Bulgaria. Goal of the meeting is to discuss the sufficiency of natural gas in the country and the impact of the Russian decisions.
The meeting will take place at the Maximos Mansion at 3.30 p.m.
According to media, the meeting is expected to take stock of the situation in the wake of the decision which represents a major escalation in the standoff between Russia and Europe over energy supplies and the Ukraine conflict.
Earlier on Wednesday, Mitsotakis held a telephone call with his Bulgarian counterpart Kiril Petkov. According to a press release by PM’s Press office, Mitsotakis vowed that Greece would help Bulgaria to deal with the impact of the disconnection.
Good to see that they are planning now, despite the whole month of warnings this would happen.
I guess the Russians want to be paid in a currency that they are able to use.
