Russia has imposed sanctions against units of Gazprom Germania, in which its gas producer Gazprom ceded ownership, and also against EuRoPol GAZ SA, owner of the Polish part of the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline.
The list of sanctioned entities published by the Russian government on its website on Wednesday included 31 companies based in countries that have imposed sanctions on Russia in response to its invasion of Ukraine.
It notably includes local subsidiaries of Gazprom, supplier of more than a third of Europe’s gas, much of it via the Yamal-Europe pipeline.
With assets and subsidiaries in Germany, Britain, Switzerland, Belgium, the Czech Republic and outside Europe, Gazprom’s various activities are essential for the European gas market and its supply to industry and households.
