EU ministers to hold emergency energy meeting on Monday

French government spokesman Gabriel Attal stated on Thursday, at a press briefing, that the European Union ministers will have an emergency meeting on energy next Monday.

Previously, the prices of natural gas soared by almost 10% as Gazprom confirmed that it stopped supplying Poland and Bulgaria with gas as a result of the two countries' failure to pay for Russian gas in rubles. The US shared that such "weaponizing" of energy supplies was expected from Moscow.

Meanwhile, Spain condemned Russia's intention to use gas as a "political weapon" calling it "unacceptable." European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen labeled the move as "blackmail."
