According to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, Russian President Vladimir Putin has failed to blackmail Europe by reducing the supply of energy resources.
“V Putin unequivocally lost the energy battle he created himself, his blackmail does not work,” U. von der Leyen told reporters during a visit to the Troll gas production platform. A off the west coast of Norway.
She noted that the EU now receives much more energy from allies such as Norway and the United States. In addition, Europe has invested heavily in renewable energy resources and 20% reduced energy consumption.
“So if President Putin was planning to trip us up, he got the exact opposite result. Today we are stronger and more independent than ever,” the commission chief said.
