Lindner: Halting Russian gas imports would hurt EU

German Finance Minister Christian Lindner insisted on Monday that the decision to suspend imports of Russian gas to the European Union would cause more damage to the bloc than Russia.

However, Lindner refused to comment on whether the EU plans to impose an embargo on imports of energy products from Russia, but agreed that member states have to reach a new agreement on imposing additional sanctions on Moscow.

The remarks follow a statement made by French President Emmanuel Macron earlier today, who advocated for an immediate embargo on Russian coal and oil imports, but not natural gas.
