“While European countries are thinking about how they will spend the winter due to the energy crisis, we are entering the winter with a calm mind,” Erdogan was quoted by TASS.

Earlier, Russian leader Vladimir Putin, during a telephone conversation, discussed with Erdogan the details of creating a gas hub in Turkey.

Prior to this, the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources of the Republic, Fatih Dönmez, said that Turkey expects to start work on the implementation of the gas hub project proposed by the Russian side from the beginning of 2023.
