Final Word from Wednesday, November 9, 2022

CEO Daniel Beneš of ČEZ told Czech Radio on Fri. that many people think there were Russian agents in European politics, stakeholder organizations and institutions working to shut down German nuclear plants as a way to increase dependence on Russian natural gas. This predisposition for Russian gas ultimately caused what we have now, he said. He didn't mention Russian LNG, but isn't the same thing happening again? Many politicians, stakeholders and institutions - including EU Commission Pres. Ursula von der Leyen - are boasting about independence from Russian energy and inexplicably ignoring Europe's reliance on Russian LNG. When energy expert Pavel Janeček tweeted last week about the size of Russian LNG deliveries to Europe, Industry Min. Jozef Síkela accused him of spreading disinformation. By downplaying the importance of Russian LNG, Síkela is repeating the very error of past German and Czech politicians that he so criticizes. Why? Is he one of Vladimir Putin's moles?
