Moscow: Putin says that Europe is not responsible for the energy crisis. Putin said that there is only one problem that will be solved if the Europe Nord Stream pipeline is opened.
Europe depended on Russia for natural gas. With the outbreak of war, the Russian company Gazprom shut down the Nord Stream-1 pipeline. But Russia also said that if the Nord Stream-2 pipeline network is opened, gas will be freely available. Europe closed the second pipeline after the sanction against Russia was decided. As an alternative, Russia closed pipeline number one. Putin said that Europe used to take 55 billion cubic meters of gas annually.
