Estonia and Finland signed an agreement on the security of gas supplies, according to which the countries should help each other in case of interruptions in the supply of natural gas.
According to Ukrinform, this was reported by the national broadcaster ERR with reference to the Estonian Ministry of Economy and Communications.
The signed agreement defines the conditions under which neighbors can request and provide assistance in the event of interruptions in gas supplies. Assistance may be requested if gas supplies are insufficient to meet the demand of residential customers and critical district heating regions.
From February at Estonia there is a similar agreement with Latvia.
At the end of April, Estonia and Finland agreed on a joint project to build a liquefied natural gas terminal, which is important for refusing gas supplies from Russia.
As reported, Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal said that the introduction of an oil embargo in the sixth package of European Union sanctions would have a powerful impact on Russia.
