Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

A total shutdown in imports or a sharp limit in the flow from east to west could result in a catastrophic effect on the European economy, such as closing factories and pushing households to turn down the heat.  

In this regard, Greece's energy minister Kostas Skrekas refused to agree with "the mandatory nature of the measure, but also with the level of the limit announced," noting that his country had already taken certain measures to limit gas use, such as obliging state-controlled power utility PPC to double lignite production.

Skrekas said that Spain, Italy, France, Portugal, Cyprus, and Malta also opposed the EU's plan.
