9 tips from the EU for energy independence from Russia. I wish they could help

Would switching to a bicycle and screwing on the radiators would allow us to become independent of Russian resources ?: In theory, yes. In practice – no chance.

The situation in which the political leaders of the European Union find themselves today is unenviable. Even if some of them have no intention of severing economic relations with Russia, the grassroots pressure from citizens is enormous in this respect. Unfortunately, the reality is that, as a continent, we rely heavily on Russian raw materials such as coal, oil and natural gas, not to mention some metals and minerals (Russia is responsible, for example, for most of the world’s nickel stocks). Of course, the desire to cut off from Russian resources is now the number one political goal, but even the best intentions will not make the transition to other sources of gas, coal and oil take place directly. As fossil fuels are the basis of the economy in many countries (including transport), the crash could have consequences that are difficult to control. Not surprisingly, there is an attempt to tone down public sentiment by suggesting that citizens can take part in mitigating the impact by changing their daily habits.
