Which EU countries have suffered from Gazprom’s tap being turned off?

The European Union (EU) is on the brink of an energy cliff. Russia, the bloc’s main supplier of fossil fuels, is waging a brutal war against Ukraine that seems to have no end in sight. As Western nations slap the country with an ever-increasing number of sanctions, the Kremlin is doubling down on retaliation, going so far as to strike at the EU’s weakest point: gas dependence.

In recent months, Moscow has completely or partially cut off gas supplies to several EU member states, a radical attack that hurts both the European and Russian economies.

The main reason for justifying the measure has been a decree by President Vladimir Putin obliging energy companies to open a ruble bank account at Gazprombank for their transactions.
