Russia cuts off gas deliveries to Poland and Bulgaria

Published Date:

Russia-Ukraine conflict: It has been more than 62 days since Russia began shelling and air raiding Ukraine in an invasion.

The unprovoked war has left several parts of Ukraine in total devastation. Also, the Russian troops have been relentlessly bombing the steel plant of Mariupol.

This comes despite giving several surrender deadlines to Ukraine.

As per reports, Polish and Bulgarian officials stated that Russia is cutting off gas deliveries to the two countries.

The recent Russian move comes after their refusal to pay in Russian roubles.

It was a demand made by Russia’s Putin as the Western countries tightened sanctions over a belligerent Moscow.

Poland’s PGNiG, citing Russia’s Gazprom, said that the suspension would come into effect at 8 am local time.

Earlier, this week, US Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin had even said that America wants a weakened Russia.

The warring country should not invade Ukraine again and for the same, it is important to weaken it.

Pentagon Chief further said that Ukraine can win the war if it has the right equipment.

His remarks come as he returned from a trip to Kyiv.

He reiterated, “the first step in winning is believing that you can win. And so they believe that we can win.”

The most important US delegates met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

They were the first high-profile US officials to visit Ukraine since the Russian invasion began in late February.

Austin and Antony Blinken together said that the US diplomats will begin a gradual return to Ukraine this week.

They also announced $700 million (653 million euros) in additional military aid.

Moreover, Russia now seems to have lost a lot of military capability. Earlier, Vladimir Putin had ordered his troops to seal off Mariupol’s Azovstal steel plant.
