Ursula von der Leyen tells how EU plans to get rid of dependence on russian energy

What happened? President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen has stated that the EU needs to get rid of its dependence on russian supplies.

Source. She said this during her speech at the economic forum in Davos.

Quote. “One third of russian gas will be replaced with the supplies from the United States. The EU also relies on energy from other reliable suppliers. Green energy will provide 45% of Europe's energy until 2030,” said von der Leyen.

She added that russia was threatening the world with hunger, using food supplies as a weapon with global consequences, acting in the same way as in the energy sector. Instead, the EU is trying to help Ukraine to export its food by connecting Ukraine's border with European ports.

Von der Leyen also said that Ukraine must win. It is not just a question of Ukraine's survival or European security. This calls into question the entire international order, said von der Leyen.

“Ukraine must win this war. And putin's aggression must be a strategic failure,” she stated.
