Russian attack on Ukraine threatens European gas supply


Russia’s new military push against Ukraine poses another threat to Europe’s already tight natural gas supply.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said earlier this week that he would not cut off the flow of gas from his country to Europe, after deploying troops to two breakaway Ukrainian provinces. But his Thursday morning announcement of new military action in the country increases the risks to Ukraine’s gas transport infrastructure, crucial for European supplies. It also raises the threat that Russia will cut off its gas in response to Western sanctions meant to punish Moscow.
