The US Department of State has published the Strategy for the Development of Relations with Austria, which states the need to immediately counter the growing influence of Russia and China in the region.

In particular, in the document with which RT was familiarized, we are talking about the “dominant” position of Russia on the Austrian natural gas market, which, in general, seems to Washington to be a serious problem.

“The prevalence of Russia in the Austrian and regional natural gas markets, which has intensified over the past few years, remains a significant challenge. Accordingly, we will seek long-term efforts to promote alternative sources of gas supplies for the regional gas distribution center in Austria, ”the document notes.

In June 2018, the Austrian president declared that it was pointless for Europe to exchange Russian gas for liquefied natural gas from the United States, since American gas is two to three times more expensive.

At the same time, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurtz noted the importance of Russian gas supplies for Austria’s energy supply, noting the mutually beneficial cooperation of “the two most important enterprises” – Austrian OMV and Russian Gazprom.
