Details of ruble payments for gas to be known shortly

11 August

Turkey's Energy Minister Fatih Donmez said on Thursday that all details regarding payment for gas supplied to Turkey in rubles will be clarified in coming days.

"We do not want to indicate the percentage of payments in rubles so far. Prices, the schedule and other details will be updated shortly," the minister said. The issue of paying for a portion of Russian gas in the Turkish lira is also discussed, Donmez added.

The agreement of partial payment for gas in rubles was achieved during talks between Presidents of Russia and Turkey, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak told reporters earlier. Thus, according to Novak, Russia and Turkey are making a gradual transition to settlements in national currencies.
