Russian President Vladimir Putin said, “The ball was in the court” of the European Union when he said he was ready to send gas to Europe again through a link of the Baltic Sea Nord Stream 2 pipeline that ends in Germany.
“The Russian Federation is ready to start sending things out. Now is the chance for the European Union to take the lead. They don’t have to turn on the water, but they can if they want to. “The following is what Putin said.
Wednesday, at an energy summit in Moscow, Russia’s president said that the U.S. was to blame for the explosions on Nord Stream 1 and 2 and the gas leaks that followed. He said that the U.S. wants to hurt Europe so that the E.U. will have to get its gas from the U.S.
The explicit goal of this act of international terrorism is to make the energy security of the whole continent less safe.
“The idea behind it is cynical: cut off millions of people and businesses from gas, heat, electricity, and other resources and force them to pay much more by destroying and blocking cheap energy sources”.
The government has thrown out the charges in Washington
Earlier this month, explosions damaged pipes made in Russia that were on the floor of the Baltic Sea. An investigation into what happened is going on right now. Moscow quickly tried to blame the West for what happened; making European people think it was done on purpose.
Because of Russia’s war with Ukraine, the European Union and other European countries have worked hard to get off Russian oil and gas and find other suppliers.
On Wednesday, energy ministers from EU member states gathered in Prague to try to agree on additional steps to combat the ongoing energy crisis. Leaders are anticipated to approve the new measures the following week. Visit The UK Time for the latest information.
