Event Highlights:

  1. Deep dive into the state of play regarding LNG exports and dependencies.
  2. Discuss the financial implications of previous embargoes on Russia.
  3. Unpack the steps needed to close the gaps in the current sanctions.
  4. Hear firsthand from the EU Commission on upcoming measures and sanctions packages.
  5. Understand the overarching significance of the LNG ban for global peace and climate sustainability.

Svitlana Romanko, Founder of Razom We Stand, notes: "We have many topics to discuss - the weak oil price cap due to price cap coalition inaction, that enriches putin instead of defeating russian dictatorship, transshipments of Russian fossil gas provided by Belgium, The Netherlands, Spain, the UK and increased LNG exports by the a few key countries, including democratic EU states.  These exports must be fully stopped. The embargo on Russian fossil fuels will not only serve to end a bloody massacre for innocent people of Ukraine but also stands as a testament to the world's commitment to democracy, peace and human rights, including safe environment and safe climate. This LinkedIn Live is a crucial conversation which we initiate to make the EU Council, oil and gas price cap coalition take into account deciding on 12th sanction package and closing loopholes for russian fossil fuels and refined products.
