In the winter cold, Europe is at risk of dying from gas shortages like Covid

Is Russia Instigating a Gas War in Europe?

People ‘die like covid’ due to heating costs and cold in winter

Zelensky says Russia is playing not only grain but also gas as a “geopolitical weapon”. Many Europeans fear they will no longer be able to heat their homes in winter. A Russian analyst has predicted a “Covid-like mass death” due to the cold in Western Europe.

Russian gas giant Gazprom will cut supplies from 1 to 20 percent of the Baltic Sea pipeline Nord Stream starting Wednesday. The reason given for the renewed shortage: another turbine to be repaired.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky (44), on the other hand, sees further restrictions on Russian gas supplies to Europe as a form of Moscow’s “terrorism” against the West. “This is an open gas war that Russia has unleashed against a united Europe,” Zelensky said in his evening video message on Monday.
