Berlusconi is in favor of giving up Russian gas to Italy

In In an interview with il Foglio, Berlusconi, answering a question about support for calls to the Italian government to refuse gas from the Russian Federation, spoke positively. “Of course,” he said, “provided that alternative supplies are created.”

According to the ex-premier, Rome needs terminals for the processing of liquefied natural gas, as well as enterprises for the production of energy from waste. He added that the country needs investments in alternative renewable energy sources, including nuclear energy projects.
