MILANO – Italy is monitoring its energy situation in light of the crisis in Ukraine but at present the conditions are not there for a state of alert, Ecology Transition Minister Roberto Cingolani said on Wednesday.

Italy’s existing gas emergency protocol envisages three stages going from a state of pre-alert, imposed at the end of February after the Russian invasion of Ukraine, before moving to one of alert and then a state of emergency.
