Gazprom wants to increase Asian shipments

Russia is trying to move away from dollars and euros in payments in international agreements due to the sanctions imposed by Western countries on the financial system.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has defined those who impose sanctions on Russia as "unfriendly countries" and said that these countries can now buy various Russian products, especially natural gas, with only rubles.

Gazprom, whose gas shipments to Europe have fallen rapidly due to the sanctions, also wants to increase its shipments to Asian markets, especially to China.

Gazprom shipped about 10.4 billion cubic meters of natural gas to China last year through the Power of Siberia pipeline, which has a capacity of 38 billion cubic meters per year.
