7:03 pm
see a stretch your embargo say it was most important to show unity. i was positively surprised because our, when we went into the room and the signs were not that great, but everybody was very constructive. those expect that huge, a cat are fresh and gas as a next step are likely to be disappointed though from i come boom. it is lot easier to compensate for russian oil. we managed to solve technical problems with victor auburn over the gas, but gas is a different story. that's why gas embargo won't be part of the next sanctions package tend to amazon, sorry, energy prices all over the block were also addressed. as well as global food shortages jew as to the war in ukraine, the from fordham. pretty the responsibility for all the dangers that we are facing . like, clearly with russia and its president, it will be to see that's why it's so important that we reinforce our efforts to make sure grain can be exported from ukraine. repletion, eely dis,
7:04 pm
