The gas crisis in Europe

Since the beginning of April, natural gas from Russia has stopped flowing to Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. This was stated by the head of the Latvian gas transmission system operator Conexus Baltic Grid (Conexus) Uldis Bariss.

“Russia, as a supplier, can no longer be relied on,” Bariss said, Jauns.lv reports. He stressed that the Kremlin’s statement on the transition to ruble payments showed the countries the need to reduce purchases of Russian gas.

Uldis Barris believes that from the point of view of the state’s energy security, the issue of building a second LNG terminal needs to be resolved. “The sooner the better,” he concluded. According to him, while gas enters Latvia through the Klaipeda liquefied natural gas terminal. Bariss noted that the Baltic states now have fairly large gas reserves, so there is no reason to worry.

Russia has previously launched a special operation to demilitarize and denationalize Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that this is a forced decision needed to protect the people of Donbass from years of genocide. The European Union has condemned the launch of a special operation and imposed sanctions on Russia’s energy sector. In particular, the United States has banned the import of Russian energy.
