The film ends with the words “Winter is coming”mention of the decrease in the supply of Russian gas which could create difficulties for Europeans.
Vladimir Putin’s government has used the cuts in natural gas supplies as a possible reaction to Western sanctions imposed on the country since the start of the war in Ukraine on February 24.
On July 26, the European Union reached an agreement to voluntarily reduce gas consumption. The goal is to decrease by up to 15% in the next 8 months. The resolution came a day after Russia’s Gazprom announced further cuts in gas flows to Germany.
The countries’ objective is to reduce gas demand to ensure the bloc’s energy security, in case of possible new interruptions in Russian supply, especially during the winter. At this time of year, consumption is higher due to the use of fuel to heat homes.
