Towards two types of gas roofs. ‘The leaks in the Nord Stream caused’ – World

The European Commission is working on two types of gas price caps: one is “a price cap on gas used to generate electricity” and the other is “a cap on energy traded in Europe as long as we are working on a reform of the Ttf index “. Commission spokesman Eric Mamer said this during the daily briefing, specifying that in her speech this morning in the European Parliament, President Ursula von der Leyen “did not mention a price cap on gas imported from Russia”.

The crisis triggered by the war in Ukraine “makes it urgent to establish a genuine Energy Union”, “it will be an essential pillar of EU sovereignty”. The president of the European Council, Charles Michel, writes in an intervention published in the online edition of the Financial Times. “A genuine energy union will involve revising many of our longstanding beliefs and more collective action, as Europeans. The energy crisis has exposed the cracks in a Union made up of 27 energy ‘private reserves’. None. A country alone can cope with a crisis of this magnitude “.

The leaks caused in the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines would be the result of a “targeted sabotage” probably carried out by “state actors”. This is what the German magazine Spiegel writes, in an anticipation, citing a document of the federal anti-crime, Bka.
