BRUSSELS, May 2 —The European Commission has no information that any European company has paid in roubles for Russian gas, after Moscow demanded foreign buyers comply with a mechanism to convert payments from euros or dollars to roubles, the European Union’s energy policy chief said today.

“The Commission doesn’t have information about any countries or private company who is willing to do so,” European energy commissioner Kadri Simson said on arrival at a meeting of European Union energy ministers in Brussels. — Reuters
