Russia at the centre of European supplies


The issue of secure energy became a problem of key importance for Europe in 2006, following the dispute on gas between Russia and Ukraine, if not even earlier. It is in this context that the question of diversification of the supply sources has emerged. The EU predicts that Europe’s dependence on natural gas will increase particularly strongly. At present, Europe imports about half of its gas, in 2030 it will be almost 85 percent.
