Europeans are facing a difficult winter ahead

Europeans are facing a difficult winter ahead due to a lack of gas supplies from Russia, the impact of the conflict in Ukraine.

According to experts, gas supply from Russia in July 2022 decreased by about 70% compared to the same period in 2021.

Last month, the European Union launched an emergency plan to call on member states to reduce gas demand by 15 percent by March 2023.

Before escalating tensions over Russia’s special operation in eastern Ukraine, Russia supplied about 40 percent of the gas consumed in the EU.
