Litouwen eerste EU-lid dat van Russisch gas af gaat
April 5, 2022 - Lithuania has become the first member of the European Union to end its dependence on natural gas from Russia, the bloc’s biggest supplier of the fuel.
Lithuanian companies cut their gas flows via Russian pipelines to zero over the weekend, without the need for a ban from the government, according to Bloomberg News.
Last year, Russia directly supplied about 26 percent of Lithuania’s gas needs. The country, which is studying options to expand its liquefied natural gas terminal on the Baltic Sea, will now rely on LNG imports from the U.S. and Norway, Bloomberg said.
