In the wake of Russia's special military operation in Ukraine, the West has imposed extensive sanctions against Russia and sought alternative routes for Russian gas, but Vladimir Putin says his country will counter the Western action by using other external routes and is working on its domestic gas supply.
In an interview with "Pavel Zarubin", a famous Russian journalist, he said: "Fortunately, we are dealing with this issue and have turned to other paths." We solve our internal economic problems by using other external routes. At the same time, Russia does not deny selling energy to anyone and considers Turkey as the most reliable partner, which continues to pump gas through the TurkStream pipeline.
Referring to the attacks on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, the Russian president added: despite these attacks, one of the routes of this pipeline is still active. European countries expected that if they do not buy Russian gas, the Russian economy will collapse, but we see the opposite happening in the European Union and European industry. It is true that Russia will make more money then by buying Russian gas from Europe, but less reliance on Russian energy will be better for other sectors of our economy and actively develop them.
