The Kremlin denies accusations of "blackmail" voiced by the head of the European Commission for the transfer of gas payments into rubles. We do not agree with such statements," said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, APA's Moscow correspondent reports.

"The transfer of the payment for Russian gas into rubles took place as a result of unfriendly steps against the Russian Federation. A large amount of our currency and gold reserves have been stolen from us, "said a Kremlin spokesman.

Peskov also said that virtually nothing changes when buyers of the Russian gas make payments in rubles, there is no question of losses and price changes.
