The European Commissioner for the Internal Market and Services Thierry Breton said that the EU managed to decrease the share of Russian gas on the EU market from 40% to 7% in less than a year after Russia started its full-scale war against Ukraine.

Europe was able to replace 155 billion cubic meters of Russian gas from other sources, although its cost has increased.
