Lithuania was the first EU country to cut off natural gas imports from Russia, with Latvia and Estonia not far behind. As of April 2nd none of the Baltic states are importing gas from Russia anymore.
In the words of the Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda:
"From this month on - no more Russian gas in Lithuania. Years ago my country made decisions that today allow us with no pain to break energy ties with the agressor, If we can do it, the rest of Europe can do it too!"
In the short term all three countries are using reserves and sourcing gas from other directions, but how what is the long term plan. Will they keep hunting for new markets to buy gas from or could this be the start of a big change away from gas to more sustainable fuel sources?
