The European Union, Israel and Egypt have signed a trilateral gas export agreement .

  Andriy Yermak, head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, wrote about this on his Telegram channel .

“Gas diversification in action. In Cairo, the European Union, Israel and Egypt signed a trilateral agreement on gas exports. According to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, the Israeli energy resource will be sent to factories in Egypt, from where it will be received by the EU countries in the form of liquefied gas,” he noted.

Yermak added that this is in line with the EU’s strategy to diversify supplies to phase out the Russian energy resource.

As UNIAN reported, against the backdrop of Russia’s full-scale military invasion of Ukraine, European countries have increased  coal imports  from the Republic of South Africa. From Africa’s largest coal terminal, Richards Bay (RBCT), 3.2 million tons were delivered to Europe in January-May. In the first five months of 2022, European countries imported 40% more coal from the Republic of South Africa than in the whole of last year . For the whole of 2021, there were only 2.3 million tons.
