"bloomberg": 12 EU countries call for lower gas price ceiling

Twelve EU member states have called for lower gas price ceilings to mitigate the effects of the energy crisis on consumers and businesses in Europe.

Bloomberg reported that a coalition of 12 countries, including Belgium, Greece, Italy and Poland, made the request 4 days before a meeting of European Union energy ministers to discuss the gas crisis and has enough votes to block the deal if its demands are not met. .

Western countries are suffering from unprecedented energy price increases and high inflation due to the sanctions imposed on Russia, which have left European industries losing their competitive edge.

For his part, Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed that Western sanctions aimed at undermining the Russian economy have boomeranged on their owners.
