US senators drafted a bill providing for the allocation of $1 billion to assist European countries in ensuring their energy security and reducing dependence on Russian energy. As Deutsche Welle reported, the authors of the bill under the heading “Law on European Energy Security and Diversification” are Republican Ron Johnson and Democrat Chris Murphy. It is assumed that the allocated $1 billion will stimulate public and private sector investment in EU energy projects. These measures, according to senators, will contribute to the diversification of energy supplies to Europe and reduce Russia's influence on the region.
