EUCO: Agreement reached on EU partial oil embargo

The agreement to ban 90 percent of Russian oil from entering the European Union and to finally put the sixth sanctions package into force is welcome. To continue maximum pressure on Russia, the EU’s unity is key. European unity cannot come at the expense of the rule of law though. The EU must not give away its values for unity.

Greens/EFA call for EU energy efficiency and renewable energy strategy

The European Commission published proposals on gas storage and gas prices. For the Greens/EFA, the Commission's proposals for mandatory filling of gas storage facilities can only be a short-term, interim solution. They call on the Commission to present an emergency plan for the energy transition. Energy efficiency must come first.
