For Washington, Europe has an opportunity to reduce its dependence on Russian energy

The head of US diplomacy said, on Friday, that Europe has a chance to get rid of its energy dependence on Russia, which cut off gas supplies, before heading to NATO in Brussels.

Anthony Blinken told the press before flying from Poland to Brussels, the day after visiting Kyiv.

Europeans set the goal of getting rid of their dependence on Russian hydrocarbons while avoiding an energy crisis.

Russia cut off supplies through the strategic Nord Stream gas pipeline last weekend, saying sanctions over the invasion of Ukraine had prevented maintenance of the turbines.

So far, Moscow has taken advantage of rising energy prices to fill its coffers despite a sharp drop in oil and gas exports.

The head of US diplomacy, during his visit to NATO on Friday, will also insist on the “unity” of “members of the organization” to ensure that our alliance is as strong as possible to discourage Russia from any new aggression.
