Russia and China agree to a 30-year gas deal with new pipeline

Russia has agreed to a 30-year contract to supply gas to China with a new pipeline.

They will settle the new gas sales in Euros, strengthening an energy alliance with Beijing amid Moscow’s ties with the west over Ukraine.

The country already sends gas to China, but it will not supply it with 10 billion cubic meters of gas annually when it starts in a couple of years.
