According to the Office of the Head of State, on Monday, at the invitation of the President, the National Defense Council met to discuss issues related to energy security.The EU will not be able to find a replacement for Russian gas, says Prime Minister of GreeceAccording to Karis, Russia is playing a dangerous game not only in Ukraine, but also with the energy security of the whole of Europe. “I want all Estonians to know that it is Russia that has been behind high prices for a year now Moscow's goal is to drive Estonia and the whole of Europe into a corner, to force us to step back from our principles and from supporting Ukraine,” the president said at a press conference following a meeting of the council on national defense. According to Karis, now Estonia must work hard, to ensure energy security for the coming winter, and ensuring gas supply should be one of the most important tasks for the government.Vučić predicted deterioration in the economy of Eastern and Central Europe “The National Defense Council received comprehensive information on the risks and measures that would help ensure light and heat in all Estonian homes this winter. Today, it is not only about the amounts that will have to be paid for room heat in winter and electricity, but also about other risks.

The West increased sanctions pressure on Russia over Ukraine, which led to an increase in prices for electricity, fuel and food in Europe and the USA. Russian President Vladimir Putin has previously stated that the policy of containment and weakening of Russia is a long-term strategy of the West, and sanctions have dealt a serious blow to the entire global economy. According to him, the main goal of the West is to worsen the lives of millions of people. The Russian Federation has repeatedly stated that Russia will solve all the problems that the West creates for it.
