MOSCOW, 3 Oct — PRIME. British energy regulator Ofgem said the country is facing a gas shortage amid the energy crisis, the Times reported.

UK to allocate £1.5bn to insulate homes for the poor

It is possible that the UK will declare a ‘gas supply emergency’ in which supplies to some gas-fired power plants could be cut off, rendering them unable to generate electricity.

In this regard, Ofgem points out that a number of gas-fired power plants may go bankrupt.

The announcement is likely to heighten fear of planned power outages as the UK relies on gas-fired power plants for the largest share of its electricity supply.

The regulator assumes that the coming winter will be more “difficult” than the previous one.

The West stepped up sanctions pressure on Russia over Ukraine, which led to higher prices for electricity, fuel and food in Europe and the United States. Russian President Vladimir Putin has previously stated that the policy of containing and weakening Russia is a long-term strategy for the West, and sanctions have dealt a serious blow to the entire global economy. According to him, the main goal of the West is to worsen the lives of millions of people. The Russian Federation has repeatedly stated that Russia will solve all the problems that the West creates for it.
