Europeans warned of a possible complete halt in Russian gas supplies


In connection with the current reduction in Russian gas supplies due to Western sanctions, Europe fears a complete cessation of blue fuel transportation in the coming winter. This, in particular, warns the International Energy Agency.


Struggling with the lack of energy resources, a number of European countries are returning to the use of "non-environmentally friendly" sources of electricity. So, in Austria and Germany, it was decided to launch coal-fired power plants. According to the head of the agency, Fatih Birol, such measures are justified, given the large-scale energy shortage that the inhabitants of the continent may face in the near future.

Europe must be prepared for the fact that Russian gas will be completely cut off

Birol warned (quote from The Financial Times).

To some extent, the next winter will be a test of strength for Europeans. Birol is sure that for energy security at the moment it is necessary to take any steps, including those that run counter to the "green" agenda of Europe.

Meanwhile, the lack of gas leads to a large-scale rise in the price of electricity. Thus, in the UK, electricity by the end of this year may increase in price by as much as 50 percent. Nearly 2022 million households will be in “energy poverty” by the end of 12, with electricity bills for many households rising to £3, according to analyst firm Cornwall Insight.

    All this is nonsense. Europe has wind and solar energy. Hydrogen fuel is launched. There is a complete rejection of Russian oil and coal. Europe is switching to clean energy sources and there is nothing to stick Russian smelly gas here. Europe will have enough of its own stinking gas if they bring peas in time!

      And there will be no peas. It will not grow in the required quantity due to sanctions ... there is no fertilizer, expensive fuel, no food ... the communal apartment is getting more expensive not to the point of peas ...

      Europe does not have any solar and other energy from this plan. Europe is parasites. It's just time to show Europe their place and make them live within their means and contribution. They will live. Well, if not ... is it worth pitying them? No, it's not worth it. Let mosques be built in Europe.

    So what should we jump for joy like maydanuts??? Well, against this background, somehow, our tariff increase looks more fun???? Actually, in Russia, tariffs for gas, electricity, water, etc. are rising ... In Magnit, sugar has grown in price again. In general, judging by the installation, sellers are wanging a general price increase in chain stores, which means that the rest will trample on them. Judging by the conversations, Magnit will raise by about 28% ..... To me, this is more interesting than the problems of European blacks.

      Are you hungry? Then don't push it. Just in case, remember how to use a gas mask, if anything ... then sugar (if anything ...) you definitely won’t need it.
