Heger says that the European Union must get rid of energy dependence on the Russian Federation as soon as possible, because Russia is using oil and gas as a tool to promote its imperialist interests, which culminated in the attack of Ukraine and commissioning of war crimes in Ukraine. „The arbitrary and unjustified suspension of gas supplies to Poland proves that Russia is an absolutely unreliable trading partner,“ Heger wrote.
