The Estonian government has adopted a resolution according to which, as a restrictive measure against Moscow, the country will ban the purchase of natural gas from Russia from January 1, 2023. This was announced by Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu during a press conference in Tallinn, the Interfax news agency wrote. “From January 1, Estonia is introducing a national sanction on Russian gas. The purpose of the sanction is to put pressure on Russia to stop its military aggression against Ukraine, since natural gas is an important source of income for Russia and is used as leverage on the European Union (EU)” Reinsalu said. According to him, the Estonian government decided back in April 2022 to abandon Russian gas, and now this is enshrined as a legally binding measure. The restrictive measure applies, first of all, to Estonian gas companies, the license for which gives the right to import natural gas or provide services for its transit. According to Reinsalu, household consumers will not be affected by the decision of the authorities, since almost no natural gas has been supplied from Russia to Estonia since April. At the end of May, Prime Minister Kaja Kallas said that in Estonia, private companies that are responsible for supplying gas to consumers are looking for fuel all over the world in order to fulfill their obligations to customers.
