Zelensky called on the EU to strengthen energy sanctions against the Russian Federation

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated that as a result of energy terrorism on the part of Russia, about 40% of the entire energy infrastructure of Ukraine, including thermal power plants, thermal power plants and hydroelectric power plants, has already been seriously damaged.

This is the president said in a conversation with the European Commissioner for Energy.

The head of state spoke in detail about Ukraine’s needs for the restoration of energy infrastructure and called on the European Commission to play a coordinating role in attracting assistance from EU member states.

They also discussed the future strengthening of energy sanctions against the Russian Federation. The President of Ukraine called for the introduction of price restrictions on Russian gas in addition to the price restrictions on oil, as well as to limit the supply of Russian liquefied gas to EU countries within the framework of the next sanctions package, which must be approved as soon as possible.

Zelenskyi also drew attention to the expediency of creating a platform to support the Ukrainian economy, in particular the energy sector, like the Contact Group in the Rammstein format.

“This platform, such “Economic Rammstein”, is being built and will start working. Today, the issue of energy goes hand in hand with the financial crisis and the shortage of weapons, so such a platform should be created,” the head of state is convinced.
