Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said on Monday that it is "unlikely" that Russia will publish a list of countries agreeing to pay for Russian gas in rubles, APA reports citing Teletrader.

He repeated that "there is still some time" for other states to comply, as the currency change will affect the payments for deliveries in May.

Turning to negotiations with Ukraine, Peskov said that "contacts continue at the expert level within the framework of the negotiation process." However, he accused Kiev of "not showing consistency" and of changing its position. "The dynamics of progress in the negotiation process leaves much to be desired," he commented.
