Minister of Environment and Climate of Finland Kai Mykkänen wants to limit the import of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Russia, the news agency Uutissuomalainen reports.
"Mykkänen intends to propose a ban on the import of liquefied natural gas from Russia through national legislation,' the report says.< /p>
It is noted that this step is associated with the introduction of a new set of European Union rules in the gas market. The rules will include a clause that allows the introduction of restrictions at the level of member states at their discretion.
At the moment, the Finnish state-owned company Gasum continues to import liquefied natural gas from Russia. Imports of pipeline gas from Russia to Finland ceased in May 2022 due to Gasum’s refusal to pay for supplies in rubles.
