Minister of Agriculture and Forestry, Vahit Kirişci, stated that some European leaders asked President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for help with Russia’s gas supply, and said, “The leaders of the Balkan countries said, ‘Please tell Putin. Your relations with President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev are good. They said that they should not make any cuts in the fuel we bought or the gas they gave on the winter day,” he said.
Russia, which was sanctioned by the West for its attacks on Ukraine, gave the answer by cutting off natural gas and cutting off oil shipments. Russian gas giant Gazprom also announced that the Nord Stream gas pipeline will not reopen to Europe as planned.
After this step of Russia, European countries sought to supply gas from different countries and made absurd suggestions to citizens such as “not taking a shower” and “winter vacation”.

Putin, on the other hand, challenged the West once again at the event held in Vladivostok, saying, “We will not provide gas, oil, coal, heating oil. We will not provide anything. The West will be frozen.”
