British readers of the publication, who are “ashamed” of the country, defended Russia.
The British Daily Mail claims the UK became dependent on Russia after a gas storage facility in Yorkshire closed.
The authors of the document believe that this situation was caused by the authorities' orientation towards fuel imports instead of the decision to expand energy production in their country. And now the British depend on the decisions of Vladimir Putin.
As RIA Novosti points out, Great Britain is at the head of the European gas crisis, as the level of its consumption in the country is high. Against the backdrop of reduced production in the North Sea and Irish Sea fields, the country is forced to buy it from other states.
According to experts, energy vulnerability only increases from the supply chain & # 8220; just in time & # 8221; by sea and pipelines, instead of shale gas production in Britain itself.
Four years ago, the last gas storage facility in Yorkshire was shut down, causing gas prices to rise sharply. As a result, residents will have to face a difficult winter, because, given the shortage of natural gas, it is extremely expensive.
The rise in prices was caused by a shift towards the Asian market, which inflated them above the European markets. And gas storage facilities in the country itself are poorly stocked.
The publication also believes that the government of the country will have to make a difficult choice: keep tariffs growing or allow them to increase suppliers
In this situation, the edition of the Daily Express notes the political context. The words of Russian experts on & # 8220; Nord Stream-2 & # 8221; he considers it to be some kind of signal sent by Moscow.
According to journalist Jacob Paul, it is the Kremlin that is responsible for the growth in electricity consumption in the EU and Britain. And he hardly calls this blackmail from Russia in order to get a certificate for the & # 8220; SP-2 & # 8221 ;.
Yet Daily Mail readers defended Russia. They were ironic when Moscow was accused of deliberately limiting Britain's supply of blue fuel. In their opinion, it is customary to criticize Russia with or without reason.
So, according to PTFE98, the gas belongs to Russia, and she sets the price she wants. Some users have said that bureaucrats from the US and EU are hampering the pipeline launch and Russia has nothing to do with the price hike. And it was the United States and Europe that used sanctions to slow down construction.
& # 8220; If something goes wrong, Russia is immediately to blame! & # 8221;, & # 8220; The United States was not going to sell gas to Europe ' they only export gas a few months a year and import it in winter & # 8221;, & # 8211; they wrote.
User Leo Kassan believes the EU should impose sanctions on the US for interference in the European energy market.
& # 8220; It's not about Putin, and British eco-fanatics, 'concluded Leo Kassan.
Third-party users believe UK authorities should be responsible for the crisis, which made stupid decisions and had nothing planned in advance. And now the British are “ashamed of their country” and are asking Russia for something.
