EU Energy Commissioner: We cannot deal with Russia as a reliable gas supplier

"We cannot deal with Russia as a reliable supplier of gas," said EU Energy Commissioner Kadri Simsonla, noting that "I expect EU energy ministers to agree today on emergency measures."


And she considered that "we have to submit a proposal that enjoys broad support, to set a ceiling for Russian gas prices."


It is noteworthy that "the dispute continued between the European Union countries, regarding setting a ceiling for gas prices in the Union, as France, Belgium and 13 countries intensified their call to take this step, which was opposed by Germany and other countries."


An official from one of the European Union countries told "Reuters", "It is very doubtful, whether setting a ceiling on gas prices is the correct procedure," adding that "energy savings should be the priority of countries."
