Ankara – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said today that Russia is cutting gas supplies to the European Union in retaliation for anti-Russian sanctions, adding that the EU is reaping what it sows. Reuters reported that fears of an impending winter are growing in Europe after Russia announced it was keeping a major gas transit route closed.

Russia has indefinitely halted supplies to the EU through the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline and has also restricted the flow in other gas pipelines leading to the west.

“Europe is reaping what it has sown,” Erdogan told reporters in Ankara today. “Putin has deployed all his means and weapons, and the most important of them is natural gas,” he said. He thinks that Europe will face serious problems in the winter.

In the past six months, the 27-year-old has imposed a series of sanctions on Moscow over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“We don’t have such a problem,” said the Turkish president about the lack of energy raw materials in the EU.

Reuters notes that Turkey, a NATO member, is trying to balance between Russia and Ukraine. Although it sends weapons to Ukraine, it has not imposed sanctions against Russia and continues to trade with it, accepting its tourists and investments. Ankara argues that sanctions against Moscow would damage its economy, which is already in poor shape, and is focused on playing a mediator role between the warring parties.
