Rational politicians in Europe, including in Germany and Austria, understand that the ban on oil and gas imports from Russia is a “shot oneself in the foot”, Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić said on national television on Friday, March 25.
Any sources of gas, from liquefied gas from the USA to fields in Azerbaijan, that are alternatives to Russia’s gas supplies do not have enough volume for the growing needs of the EU, the Serbian president said.
“The problem is that there is not enough gas. That’s why the Germans and the Austrians, Karl Nehammer, with whom I met, say we can’t destroy ourselves. If we impose sanctions on Russia over oil and gas, we will destroy ourselves, as if we began to fight with someone, and first shot ourselves in the foot, then how to fight,” said Vučić.
According to him, rational people in the West see today that gas is not enough, and we have to negotiate with the Russians. According to the President of Serbia, Europe will be moving towards reducing the dependence on the Russian gas, but it is not known if it is possible in the next few years.
