Europe will assess NATO's ability to protect the energy sector

Apr 10, 2024

EU ministers will discuss next week what role NATO can play in protecting the continent's energy infrastructure from a possible attack following Russia's invasion of Ukraine.


This is reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to Bloomberg.

Belgium wants to ask member states what contribution NATO can make to the fight against a wide range of threats, including sabotage, cyberattacks, and hybrid warfare tactics. All EU members will also discuss how to finance cross-border infrastructure.

"The war against Ukraine showed that energy was, is, and probably will be deliberately and actively used as a weapon," the document says.

The publication points out that monitoring the energy infrastructure in the 27 member states and their seas is a difficult task, especially as the EU moves towards a more digital energy network and allocates decentralized renewable energy sources.
