Russia CUTS electricity to Finland:
Moscow-run state energy company says it will stop supplying Helsinki tomorrow over ‘payment issues’ amid tensions over NATO
RAO Nordic has said it will suspend its electricity import to Finland from May 14
The supplier firm is a subsidiary of Russian state energy holding Inter RAO

The Finnish electricity network operator said it would be able to make do without Russian electricity.
‘We’re prepared for this and it won’t be difficult. We can make do with a bit more imports from Sweden and Norway,’ Fingrid’s manager for operational planning Timo Kaukonen told AFP.
He said a little less than 10 percent of electricity consumed in Finland comes from Russia.
