Russia dropped the hammer on Monday by announcing gas supplies to Europe through Nord Stream 1 will be halted indefinitely until Western sanctions are lifted.
From RT, "Main gas pipeline to EU will be closed until sanctions lifted – Kremlin":
Technical issues with gas deliveries to Europe via the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline will persist until the West lifts sanctions it has slapped on Russia over the ongoing Ukraine conflict, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.Ursula von der Leyen said in February the EU would be just fine without Russian energy, now she's whining about Russia cutting them off.
What's so remarkable about the situation is Russia's brand new Nord Stream 2 pipeline to Germany is fully completed and ready to be turned on at any time -- if German and EU politicians allow it.
From Reuters, "Russian lawmaker urges Europe to revive Nord Stream 2 to solve energy crisis":
Europe could solve its energy crisis by scrapping sanctions against Russia and launching the mothballed Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, the speaker of Russia's lower house of parliament said on Friday.Zero Hedge on Monday shared a forecast predicting energy bills for a typical European family will surge around 200% this year.
Western leaders have stated explicitly the needs of Ukraine take precedence over their own voters -- no matter how rough the winter gets or how high their energy bills surge.
