European Union's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell stated on Monday, during a press conference, that the European Union should brace itself for a gas cut-off.

Borrell noted that the EU will be closely monitoring the gas supply issue and is waiting to see what will happen after the servicing period for the Nord Stream 1 finishes. He underscored that the bloc will be ready to "prevent any possible scenario."

Borrell also added that the EU continues to work on sanctions, adding that although they might not "stop the war overnight, the consequences of the sanctions will create a lot of economic trouble for Russia."
