The EU is developing plans to ration gas supplies in the event of a complete suspension of gas supplies from Russia.

European Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson said the region is keen to store as much gas as possible and could replace most of Russia's supplies this year, but would have to do more in the event of a complete shutdown of supplies.

Plans being developed will include gas rationing for industry, according to the Financial Times.

Russia has already cut off deliveries to Poland, Bulgaria and Finland for refusing to comply with a demand for payment in rubles. Simson warned that any member state of the EU could be next.

The EU has said that member states can continue to buy Russian gas as long as they pay in euros or dollars and do not open ruble accounts in Russian banks.

Before the war, the EU received 40% of gas supplies from Russia. Last week, he unveiled a €210 billion plan to cut off Russian energy supplies by 2027.
