“Whatever they say in Brussels, Europe is physically unable to refuse either our oil, let alone our gas.

After all, some countries of the continent are 100% dependent on its supplies.

Not to mention the fact that the rejection of Russian oil and gas is extremely difficult technically, ”RIA Novosti quotes him as saying. 

Shirov explained that in order to replace Russian oil and gas, the EU needs to establish other delivery channels and restructure the work of specialized enterprises. 

Earlier, European Commissioner for Economic Affairs Paolo Gentiloni said that the European Union is not yet in a position to agree on an embargo on Russian oil imports.

Leading expert of the National Energy Security Fund, lecturer at the Financial University under the Government of Russia Igor Yushkov, in an interview with Economics Today, commented on the situation with energy supplies to the EU.
