Ursula von der Leyen, President of the EU Commission, announced that they will propose a ceiling price for Russian gas.

Leyen suggested that member states agree on a price cap on Russian gas imports as part of measures to punish Moscow for its invasion of Ukraine.

‘The purpose here is very clear,’ Leyen told reporters. “We must cut off the revenues of Russia, which Putin is using to finance this brutal war against Ukraine,” he said.

“Oil and gas companies also made huge profits,” Leyen said. For this reason, we will propose a solidarity contribution for fossil fuel companies.


Russian President Putin warned the West about this issue in the past hours.


Putin said that if a ceiling price is imposed on Russia’s oil and gas exports, Russia will cut off its energy supply. Putin warned the West that in such a situation it would be ‘frozen’, like the wolf’s tail in a famous Russian fairy tale.

The Kremlin has announced that gas supplies to Europe through Russia’s Nord Stream 1 pipeline will not fully resume unless sanctions against Moscow are lifted.

On the other hand, the European Commission has proposed financial assistance of five billion euros to Ukraine.

“The situation in Ukraine requires our full support,” the head of the commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said on Twitter.
