    UPDATEDEVELOPINGRussia cutting off gas supplies to Finland, power company says


    May 20, 2022 - dpa English

     

      Copenhagen (dpa) - Russian gas exports to Finland are to be cut off starting on Saturday, according to Finnish energy provider Gasum, citing correspondence from Gazprom.

      The flow of gas from Russia is set to stop at 7 am (0400 GMT).

      "It is highly regrettable that natural gas supplies under our supply contract will now be halted. However, we have been carefully preparing for this situation and provided that there will be no disruptions in the gas transmission network," Gasum wrote on Friday, saying it had set up alternate supply networks.

      Finland applied this week to join NATO, a move that likely angered Russia, which has long complained that the Western defence bloc is encroaching too close to its borders and which launched its ongoing invasion of Ukraine presumably to stop its government from considering NATO membership and closer ties to the West.
