The Russian side is ready to help Great Britain overcome the gas crisis. This was announced by the Russian Ambassador to London Andrei Kelin. His words on Sunday, October 17, are quoted by RIA Novosti.
He clarified that Moscow will come to the rescue and will do everything possible “to alleviate the conditions that have now created a real crisis.” Kelin also noted that Norway and other suppliers provide Britain with gas, and the share of Russian Gazprom is about three percent.
Earlier, the UK Steel group, which lobbies the interests of the British steel industry, warned that the country was on the verge of another crisis. Soaring wholesale gas prices can lead to plant shutdowns, lower profit margins, increased greenhouse gas emissions and supply chain disruptions.
