The observer confirmed that Europe is experiencing an acute crisis due to a sharp rise in energy prices and their shortage.

“Ministers in Brussels are urgently trying to prepare for a harsh winter,” the article says.

The meeting of EU ministers was held on Friday, September 9. The heads of ministries discussed additional measures to reduce tensions in the world.
