“We have to be ready to pay a price to put an end to the war” PM of Finland Sanna Marin about sanctioning the Russian energy sector
Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin stated on a local TV Channel that the European Union has yet to do enough in imposing sanctions against Russia.
“It’s clear that unless energy is part of the sanctions, we’re continuing to finance Putin’s war. And that’s an untenable situation,” she said.
While Finland is prepared to continue ramping up the sanctions, including against the energy sector, it is critical that such decisions are made jointly by the EU, underlined Marin.
“We’re well aware that Germany is very reliant on gas imported from Russia. We have to put our heads together to figure out how we can help Germany to wean itself off the gas as soon as possible,” stated Marin. “Forty-five days of war is forty-five days too many. Russia’s war isn’t honorable, it’s cruel and brutal, and it must end.”
