Putin: EU imposing oil, gas sanctions under US pressure

Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed on Tuesday that the European Union is looking to impose more and more sanctions on the Russian oil and gas sectors under pressure from the "American overlord."

Putin asserted that the measures are "absolutely" politically motivated and that European countries are not even considering the fact that the embargo will damage their economies.

The Russian president also slammed the West for blaming Moscow for energy inflation in an effort to "cover up its mistakes."
