Europe must prepare for a complete cut-off of Russian gas
The European Commission President Ursula Von der Leyen accused Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin, of using energy as a weapon in an address to lawmakers in Strasbourg on July 6, 2022.
The commission is working on a “European emergency plan” with the first proposals to be presented by the middle of the month, she said.
Von der Leyen said: “If the worst comes to the worst, then we have to be prepared.”
She stressed the importance of having a European overview and coordinated approach “to a potential complete cut-off of Russian gas.”
