European Commissioner for Economic Affairs Paolo Gentiloni said: "We are not afraid of Putin's decisions."
The phrase was said against the backdrop of an agreement with Israel and Azerbaijan to increase gas supplies to the European Union.
In sum, in a few years, Israel and Azerbaijan will be able to supply the EU with about 15% of what Russia supplies.
But this is not certain, because the gas must go through a transshipment point in Egypt, as well as through a gas pipeline, provided that Turkey and Greece do not start a war against the backdrop of territorial claims.
Where the European Union will take the remaining 85% of the gas, the European Commissioner did not say anything.
