To return leadership in fuel supplies, it is necessary to fully resume the operation of the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline, which is under sanctions, the expert pointed out.
“As long as there is a conflict, as long as there are sanctions, this is unlikely,” Demidov said.
According to the analyst, Europe will not be able to find cheaper gas than Russian.
