A European Union (EU) embargo on gas from Russia is not possible, Austria has always advocated that sanctions harm those against whom they are imposed more than those who impose them. This was stated by Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer, reports APA.

According to him, Austria, like other EU countries, is largely dependent on Russian gas, and with the introduction of the embargo, the Austrian and German industry “will lose stability.” He noted that the “tilt” of the German economy will lead to mass unemployment in Austria.

“Sanctions should hit more on those against whom they are directed, and not harm those who take them”,— emphasized Nehammer.


The European Union has introduced several packages of sanctions against Russia since the end of February. The latter was announced in early June. This package included a partial embargo on Russian oil imports.

Now the EU is preparing the seventh package of sanctions. However, restrictions on the supply of Russian gas will not be included in it, since the EU members could not reach an agreement on this issue in such a short time, Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala said.

In addition to Austria, Hungary, Serbia and Germany opposed the embargo on Russian gas supplies. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban noted that such a ban would “destroy the European economy.”

The Russian authorities consider the sanctions of the EU and other Western countries illegal. The Foreign Ministry stated that restrictive measures “turned into a boomerang for Western economies”, while Moscow has the right to tighten its “special measures”.
