MINSK, 6 April (BelTA) – The EU will not stop buying Russian gas, the head of the Baltnews news agency, political scientist Andrei Starikov said on the air of the Belarus 1 TV channel, BelTA informs.

“We can say for sure: the European Union will not stop buying Russian gas. The EU needs to fill 80% of its gas storages by October. The storage facilities are empty now. The amount of gas they need to buy is enormous. Even in the current conditions, when these discussions are on the agenda, we see that German industrialists, unions of industrialists, steelworkers and so on are panicking,” Andrei Starikov said.

The political scientist noted: they say that their industries will not be able to go on. “The price for the final product will not leave them a single chance. Yet, the European side assures that it is not ready. More sovereign EU countries say that they need gas and that they will not freeze their population to show some incomprehensible dubious solidarity. Therefore, we will wait and see,” he added.
