EU 'failure' slammed as green credentials thrown out window with Putin's new gas pipeline


    But in the threat of a looming gas supply crisis, after Mr Putin reportedly restricted the flow of gas travelling into Europe through another pipeline, the UK had to fire up the West Burton A coal plant to bolster the National Grid.

    While the UK does not directly import pipeline gas through Russian pipelines, it does buy Russian gas indirectly, from the Netherlands.

    Gas prices have also been reportedly rising over Europe this summer and encouraged many countries to dip into their gas reserves.

    But now the Nord Stream 2 pipeline is complete according to Gazprom, the state-owned Russian gas company who built the pipeline, and it is nearly ready for use.
