Russia denies weaponising energy amid Europe gas crisis – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Russia has denied using energy as a political weapon, amid surging prices across Europe that have sent gas bills in many households skyrocketing.

Russia, one of Europe’s biggest natural gas providers, has been accused of intentionally withholding supplies.

President Vladimir Putin said such claims were “complete rubbish… and politically motivated tittle-tattle”.

Russia supplies only 30% of the entire European market. Why don't the Europeans talk about the other 70% of suppliers?

should have gone green decades ago…
Having control of your nation's energy requirement is without question the strongest strategic advantage any nation could have…
Instead, ya have to go cap in hand to some of the most odious people on the planet.
A lesson in the learning…

Why are you always blaming Russia for everything? Is that all you can do? Yes he’s right, this IS politically motivated.

Phil Dobson October 14, 2021 - 2:53 AM

This is why we voted to leave the EU: Nasty little EU officials blocking things, for their hormone replacement therapy & others (such as us) paying the price!

Whether or not he's weaponized it is fairly irrelevant you have given him the opportunity to therefore when the prices have gone up is it natural or conspiracy who knows but Europe has presented that opportunity to bladder Mia Putin

Russia will supply what you want in the contract. stop blaming Russia because you didn't buy enough gas. Always shifting blame to Russia. the whole point of NORD stream 2 is to supply gas, so use it!
I dont get the logic. Eu wants more gas, they dont want to sign contracts for more, they dont want to use the new Nord stream 2 pipeline either. How else are you going to get the gas? MORONS

Putin is right that is how Europeans use with other countries let them powdown to Russia that depends on their survival for the winter

Maybe the EU shouldn't have spent the last 20 years trying to undermine the Russian government.

For me, it's Moderna. The best covid™ vaccine. I even ask for extra jabs and the Walgreens staff is so friendly and more than willing to oblige.

One time I asked for a Moderna jab and they gave me three. I said, "Wow, three for free!" and the nice friendly Walgreens pharmacist laughed and said, "I'm going to call you 3-for-free!".

Now the staff greets me with "hey it's 3-for-free!" and ALWAYS give me three jabs. It's such a fun and cool atmosphere at my local Walgreens pharmacy, I go there at least 3 times a week for jabs and pcr tests, 1-2 times for Pfizer on the weekends, and maybe once for JnJ when I'm in a rush but want to feel safe and show that I believe in the $cience!, it's fast, and can match my daily coof fearing needs.

I even jab my dog with science juice, it's safe! What a great pharmacy

Weaponising energy? Where did that accusation come from, How did we get wind of this rumour?
It's understandable Russia would use gas and oil as Ace cards over Europe, leverage to get the upper hand in response to international pressure or criticism.

Germany especially, being Europe largest economy(?) Which is heavily dependent on Russian gas. So multiple sources I have come across have said.
