Peskov: the West does not admit its mistakes and blames the Russian Federation for the rise in gas prices

Western politicians prefer to blame the Russian Federation for the rise in gas prices, instead of admitting their mistakes, which led to the current situation on the energy market. This opinion was expressed by the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov on the air of the TV channel “Russia 1” in the program “Moscow. Kremlin. Putin “.

A Kremlin spokesman recalled that the West’s hopes for renewable energy sources and the spot market did not materialize. At the same time, people who at one time made the wrong decisions cannot admit their mistake.

“They are politicians, they will be driven out then … so it is better to demonize someone,” said Peskov, explaining why Europe is now accusing Russia of rising gas prices.

The presidential spokesman also stressed that Putin did not frighten anyone, speaking at Russian Energy Week about the possible energy future of Europe. According to Peskov, “the president sometimes describes prospects very well,” and sometimes those who do not listen to him later realize that he was right.

On Wednesday, Putin named the reasons for the gas crisis in Europe. According to him, the rise in gas prices in Europe was the result of a shortage of electricity, and not vice versa.

“Over the past decade, step by step, systemic flaws have been built into the European energy sector. It was they who led to a large-scale market crisis in Europe, ”said the President.

The Russian leader drew attention to the fact that there were no such situations in Europe while nuclear and gas generation were in the leading positions.
