Energy security: Can Europe live without Russian gas?

The EU gets a quarter of its gas from Russia. While Spain, Sweden and the UK are totally independent from Russian supplies, Finland and the Baltic states get all their gas from Russia's state giant Gazprom. One lesson from the current stand-off over Ukraine appears clear: high dependence on Russian gas makes Europe weak.

This week, the Polish Prime Minister proposed an energy union. Donald Tusk believes Europe must confront Russia's monopolistic position with a single European body charged with buying its gas.
