The United States and the EU said in a statement that they were working on the supply of “additional volumes of natural gas” for Europe, in order to face, among other things, a backlash from a possible “invasion Russian from Ukraine.”

In the face of rising tensions between Western countries and Russia, “the United States and the European Union are working together to ensure a continuous, sufficient and timely supply of natural gas to the EU from various sources around the world to avoid supply shocks, including those that could result from a new Russian invasion of Ukraine,” US President Joe Biden and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said in a statement. common dated January 28.

“The United States is already the largest supplier of liquefied natural gas to the EU. We are working with governments and market operators to supply additional volumes of natural gas to Europe from various sources around the world,” they add.

An offensive against Ukraine denied by Moscow

Westerners accuse Moscow of preparing an offensive against the neighboring country, which Moscow categorically denies. Russia, for its part, expresses its fears about its security, linked to the extension of NATO towards the east and the prospect of deliveries of offensive armaments to Ukraine, a border country. In this context, Moscow has proposed treaties to Washington and NATO providing for the Atlantic Alliance to renounce any enlargement to the East and a return to the security architecture built in Europe after the end of the Cold War.

Western countries are threatening Russia with unprecedented sanctions if President Vladimir Putin takes action. Washington has notably maintained that the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline between Russia and Germany, completed but not yet operational, would not be activated in the event of an attack.

In this case, however, Americans and Europeans fear that the Kremlin, in retaliation, will drastically reduce its supply of hydrocarbons to Europe, which is vital for many countries.
