The UK and the EU are developing a new package of sanctions against Russian projects in the gas sector, which may be introduced in the event of an escalation around Ukraine. This is reported by the Financial Times, citing its own sources.

The publication clarifies that the next sanctions are being developed with the support of the United States. The goal of the “gas” package is to “hard limit” the technological and financial injections that are associated with Russian initiatives in this industry.

It is clarified that the sanctions may also affect European companies, including Shell, Total and BP, which cooperate with Russian companies and invest in the gas sector of the Russian Federation.

Recall that earlier a number of European officials announced the introduction of restrictions on the construction and launch of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in the event that Russia invades Ukraine.

Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov stated that Russia does not plan an invasion and does not pose a threat to anyone.
