The Russian Foreign Ministry said that Moscow categorically rejects US accusations of using gas supplies as a tool for manipulation, RIA Novosti reported.
The deputy head of the department, Sergei Ryabkov, said that “it is shameless that they continue to repeat such accusations like an overplayed record.” He noted that Russia has never exerted pressure by supplying its energy resources.
According to a Foreign Ministry spokesman, this is not the first time such claims have been made and are part of an information war.
Earlier, experts told how the energy crisis in the EU will affect the world economy. All over the world prices for electricity and heating will start to rise, followed by food prices.
Prior to that, it was reported that prices began to rise rapidly not only for gas, but also for fuel oil, oil and coal. Analysts associate their rise in price with the rise in the cost of natural gas. Denmark said that the energy shortage against the backdrop of the upcoming winter could be a difficult test for Europeans.
