Every year, millions of euros of public money flow through European municipalities and governments to the Russian state: with a gas supply of 38%, Russia already dominates the European market. Now, with tensions in Eastern Europe reaching a peak over the Russian invasion of Ukraine it's time for governments to resist: #StopGazprom and switch their gas supplier.

Russian legislation stipulates that only Gazprom is allowed to operate pipelines used for export. Aiding Gazprom in becoming the biggest supplier to the European Union (EU), which it has been for decades (source: DW).

Putin knows that Europe depends on Russia for more than a third of its gas supply and is cleverly responding to this - according to a recent report by the International Energy Agency. This European dependence now seems to play into Putin's hands: he can corner entire European countries with the simple push of a button.

To avoid this further reliance and stop funding the invasion in Ukraine, we call to European governments to #StopGazprom and break their ties.

The facts about Gazprom:
- Gazprom is in the hands of the Russian state and accounts for 5% of GDP (USD 75 billion) which is used to fill the war chest
- Gazprom is known for corruption, leaking pipelines and drilling for oil and gas in the Arctic.
- Gazprom gas is on average 30% more polluting than European gas.

By signing this petition you are demanding that:
- All EU municipalities cancel their contract with Gazprom.
- Nord Stream 2 will be shut down permanently 
- All concessions, tenders, collaboration projects, shared investments, joint ventures, and supply contracts with Gazprom will be terminated.

In this way, we ensure that public money does not go to the Russian war chest, but to sustainability in Europe!
