Russia tightens grip on energy role as Europe enters crisis: Deputy PM blames 'short-sighted policy'

A global gas supply shortage has driven European energy bills to record levels over the past month. Europe receives around 30% of its natural gas imports from Russia, and leaders accused Gazprom, a Russian state-owned multinational energy company, of manipulating energy prices by limiting the supply.

Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak fired back Saturday that Europe had only itself to blame.
