Reject Putin demand to pay gas in rubles - Giavazzi

No govt decision yet but Putin demand way of skirting sanctions

(ANSA) - ROME, MAR 23 - Italy should reject Russian President Vladimir Putin's demand that Europe pay for Russian gas in rubles and not euros, Premier Mario Draghi's economic advisor Francesco Giavazzi said Wednesday.
    He told a Bloomberg forum that the government has not taken any decision on the demand, mad earlier Wednesday, "but my opinion is that paying in rubles would be a way of getting round the sanctions (for the Ukraine war), and so I think we will continue to pay in euros". (ANSA).
