[Brussels, 27th Reuters]–European Commission member Kadri Simson (in charge of energy) will review the emergency plan for each country on the 27th, saying that there may be “serious disruption” in the supply of natural gas from Russia. At the same time, he called for the use of other fuels as much as possible to save natural gas.
“From the time Russia began its invasion of Ukraine, it was predicted that there would be a very serious turmoil,” Simson said after the European Union (EU) Energy Ministers’ meeting. “We have done a lot of important work to prepare for this. I’ve been there. Now is the time to strengthen. “
Russia has already reduced supply to 12 of the 27 EU member countries. Next month, the Commission will present plans to prepare for further shocks over supply.
