EU could buy emergency gas supplies from Russia - report
The EU could buy emergency gas supplies from Russia in a bid to drive down rocketing energy prices, The Daily Telegraph reported citing its own sources.
The common purchase of gas reserves would be similar to the bloc's joint procurement strategy for buying coronavirus vaccines.

EU sources said the idea the EU could buy emergency gas reserves from Russia was among several being looked at.
