Von der Leyen: European bills rise 300% as Russia cuts gas supply | European Parliament / CC BY 2.0Europeans started overpaying for gas and electricity by 300% in the summer of 2022, European Commission (EC) chief Ursula von der Leyen said during a speech in the Canadian parliament. According to the politician, bills in Europe have risen sharply due to reduced supplies from Russia.

According to the head of the European Commission, Moscow has reduced exports of blue fuel to Europe by 80% in eight months. Von der Leyen said that last summer the cost of energy carriers in the European market “skyrocketed”.

“Our electricity and gas bills have gone up 300%,” Von der Leyen said.

The head of the European Commission noted that EU authorities had managed to oppose Russian gas with “a large amount of imports from reliable suppliers”. Speaking from the rostrum of the Canadian Parliament, von der Leyen assured that it is Ottawa that “has played a key role in this area”, increasing the volume of liquefied natural gas exported to the European market.
