'Europe addicted to Russian gas!' Boris Johnson skewers EU for dependence on Putin

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has slapped down Europe’s “addiction” to Russian oil and gas supplies as Parliament met to discuss further sanctions to punish the Kremlin for invading Ukraine. Mr Johnson urged EU countries to move away from reliance on hydrocarbons supplied by Russia after Vladimir Putin ordered troops to invade Ukraine in the early hours of Wednesday morning. 

Mr Johnson told MPs: “I think the key thing is to get people first of all to recognise the scale of that dependency, as in any addiction.

“That’s what we’re doing and UK Government has been making that point the whole time to our friends because it’s got worse since 2014.

“But what we’re also doing is helping countries for instance, in the Baltic states to go further and faster with renewable technology.”
