Europa ist auf russisches Gas angewiesen.

English Translation

Europe can’t do without Russian gas.

I know that Clozemaster sourced the sentences in its main collections (fluency fast track, most common words etc.) from Tatoeba several years ago, so when I saw this sentence I thought I’d check the history.

This sentence was originally posted on Tatoeba in March 2014 (in Russian and German), in the days immediately following Russia’s annexation of Crimea.

It could easily have been taken straight from some newspaper headline this week, eight years later in 2022!
