EU dependency on energy imports from Russia

EU dependency on energy imports from Russia (million tonnes of mineral fuels – oil, gas and solid fossil fuels)

Over the past year, the EU has been remarkably successful at diversifying its supply of fossil fuels away from Russia towards other third-country suppliers (see Figure 1 below). According to data from Eurostat, ‘Russia’s share of EU energy imports fell by more than 10 percentage points between the first and third quarter of 2022, from 25.5% to 15.1%’. In fact, the process of ending the EU’s reliance on Russian fossil fuels is ongoing and will continue to be impacted by new EU sanctions policies.
