According to sources, Scholz made such a proposal to European leaders at a summit in Prague. Under the proposed option, Germany wants to use the G7 presidency, which it holds until the end of the year, to create such an alliance.

“The union will allow the EU to partner with countries like Japan and South Korea, which are among the world’s largest buyers of LNG, to avoid price volatility, Canada and Norway, and persuade them to lower prices,” it says.

Ursula von der Leyen, the head of the European Commission, previously stated that a ceiling price should be introduced for Russian gas. At the end of August, it announced that the European Commission is working on quick and long-term measures to improve the situation in the EU against the backdrop of rising electricity prices, which are largely tied to the cost of blue fuel. By the end of September, however, the energy ministers of EU countries could not agree on a ceiling price for gas from Russia; According to Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjártó, “several large, powerful European countries” were against it.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin commented on the West’s idea of ​​limiting the prices of Russian energy supplies, saying that Russia will not supply anything abroad if it goes against its own interests.

The West has increased the pressure on Russia to impose sanctions on Ukraine, which has caused electricity, fuel and food prices to rise in Europe and the United States. Putin has previously said that the policy of controlling and weakening Russia is a long-term strategy for the West, and that the sanctions have dealt a serious blow to the entire global economy. According to him, the main purpose of the West is to worsen the lives of millions of people. Russia has repeatedly stated that the country will solve all the problems that the West has created for itself.
