Moscow can't afford gas war with Europe

Europe should not take Moscow's threat to cut off its gas supplies seriously, Matthew Bryza, director of the International Centre for Defence Studies, writes in the liberal daily Financial Times: "Russia would also be jeopardising its long-term position as Europe's principal gas supplier, by allowing the US, Australia and Mozambique to gain a foothold in this lucrative market. Moreover, Russia cannot cut off natural gas flows without doing permanent damage to its own natural gas reservoirs. In short, Europe can do without Russian gas; it is Moscow that cannot afford to carry through its threat. European leaders should not argue themselves out of tougher actions to stop Mr Putin's military adventurism in Europe's east."
