Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's annoying to see Krugman use the narrative of the "gas weapon" too. Russia cut off the gas to Ukraine because Ukraine was not paying for its gas. How has that anything to do with "weapons"?

If anything, it is Ukraine, which chose to cut Russia's exports to Europe (to take gas for itself) that used gas as a weapon.
