For the first time in history, the United States supplied the EU with more gas than the Russian Federation through its pipelines.

The European Union continues to reduce dependence on Russian gas. In June 2022, EU countries imported more gas from the US than from Russia, according to the International Energy Agency.
 
This was announced by the head of the International Energy Agency Fatih Birol.
"Russia's recent sharp reduction in natural gas flows to the EU means this is the first month in history that the EU has imported more liquefied gas from the US than through a pipeline from Russia," Birol said.
He also stressed that European countries should make a lot of efforts to prepare for a hard winter without dependence on Russian gas.
 
It should be noted that the Council of Europe adopted a regulation by which EU members are required to fill their underground gas storage facilities by at least 80% before the winter of 2022/2023 and at least 90% by the next winters.

Since the EU intends to completely abandon Russian gas in the future, and the Russian Federation itself is reducing energy supplies to Europe, the bloc countries are looking for other sources of supplies. In addition to the United States, for example, the European Union has already agreed with Israel on gas imports.
