Depending on Russia for vital resources is like dealing with the mob

I wonder how many years will pass before expediency takes hold and Europe goes back to Russian energy

Putin will eventually be replaced by someone like him or worse

If Russia continues on this path, I doubt the relations will ever be normalized. If they change their path, it will still take minimum 10 years for countries like Finland and Estonia. Germany will sell their soul again the first chance they see though.

Europe will probably buy some Russian gas and oil again very quickly, but they will maintain alternatives forever. Russia will never get all it's market share back and will never have Europe dependent on it again.
