The Prime Minister of Spain described the energy market of Europe in one sentence

The EU energy market is no longer working, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez told the UN General Assembly.

“Now the energy system of Europe is a market that does not function,” the politician said.


At the same time, the Spanish prime minister criticized the launch of coal-fired power plants by some EU countries. EU members should not pause their efforts to move towards cleaner energy sources, Sanchez stressed.


The West stepped up sanctions pressure on Russia over Ukraine, which led to higher prices for electricity, fuel and food in Europe and the United States. President Vladimir Putin has previously said that the policy of containing and weakening Moscow is a long-term strategy for the US and its allies, 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.
