"As far as I know, the last few payments were in rubles, but at the appropriate rate", - said the head of the department, specifying that pricing takes place in dollars, but payment is in rubles.

It's worth reminding that Russian gas for Armenia costs $165 per thousand cubic meters. Last year, the country bought gas from Russia for $414 million and oil products for $270 million.
