EU wants to save 15 percent of gas – Switzerland not joining Brussels

The EU wants to save 15 percent of gas

Switzerland will not join Brussels!

Starting Monday, EU countries want to voluntarily use 15 percent less gas to prevent shortages. And Switzerland? She didn’t join the savings plan – because she couldn’t!

Vladimir Putin (69) screws on the gas pipeline. And only in one direction: he turns it slowly. Russian gas giant Gazprom recently announced that it will reduce gas supplies through the Nord Stream 1 Baltic Sea pipeline from the current 40 percent to 20 percent of maximum capacity. Energy ministers from all EU countries are excited. Europe fears that gas supplies from Russia will be cut off.
