Polish PM: EU needs energy union for security of gas supplies

Polish prime minister Donald Tusk has called on the European Union to form an energy union to boost Europe’s energy security and reduce its dependence on the major gas supplier – Russia, after its military intervention and annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea.

“Taking into account the danger of potential gas crisis, Europe should establish more effective mechanism for ‘gas solidarity’ in the event of a crisis in gas deliveries,” Tusk said on March 29 at a cornerstone laying ceremony for a new coal-fired power block in Tychy, southern Poland.
