No. The Russian gas company Gazprom has closed the access to gas to Denmark because Ørsted will not pay in rubles.

However, in the current situation, the Danish Energy Agency does not expect problems with energy supply.

Denmark also has plans ready in case the situation should change.

The Danish Energy Agency is working on five focus areas to ensure enough gas. You can read about this and much more on the Danish Energy Agency's website here (in Danish):

Yes. On May 18 2022, the Center for Cyber Security (CFCS) raised the threat level for cyber activism against Denmark from low to medium. This is a change in the level of threats compared to recent years.

The change comes in the wake of recent pro-Russian cyber-activist attacks on European NATO countries.

In the initial phase after Russia's invasion of Ukraine, cyber-activist attacks mainly targeted Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.

Cyber activists have lately hit targets in Western European NATO countries. The increased level of activity of the pro-Russian cyber-activist groups also increases the threat of cyber-activist attacks against Denmark.

CFCS raises the threat level on the basis of the threat from actors whose motivation to hit Denmark with cyber attacks is driven by the current war in Ukraine.

On the other hand, the threat level for cyber espionage against the telecommunications sector has been lowered from high to medium, which means that CFCS assesses that the Danish telecommunications sector is not a high-priority attack target at present.

All Danes will notice a price increase on selected foods. At the same time, the price of feed and fertilizer will increase, which will increase the cost of agriculture.

Ukraine and Russia produce 31 percent of the global wheat market. Russia's invasion of Ukraine will therefore have an impact on all foods, including foods with wheat.

The war means that the prices of selected goods are likely to rise. It is primarily about bread and grain products.

It is too early to say how much prices will rise and when prices will fall again to the normal level we have been used to. It is important to emphasize that there will be no shortage of food in the supermarkets in Denmark, as we have strong supply chains and produce a lot ourselves.
