Finnish PM urges EU unity against Russia

September 14, 2022 12:00 am | Updated 05:42 am IST - Strasbourg

Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin on Tuesday appealed for EU unity in the face of Russian “blackmail” over energy supplies, and for more sanctions on Moscow.

Her call, made to the European Parliament sitting in Strasbourg, France, came a day before EU chief Ursula von der Leyen was to deliver her annual “State of the European Union” address to be dominated by the impact of the war in Ukraine on Europe.

Ms. Marin accused Russia of weaponising energy by reducing gas supplies.
