Maybe not directly but I heard they were selling more crude oil to India who was refining the crude and then selling the refined products to Europe, so indirectly in that case they still supply Europe. Germany isn't ready to have Russia cut off Gazprom supplies either, not yet.

Russia can try and keep all the gas rich territories it wants it's never getting access to western energy markets again for any foreseeable future.
Good points. If anybody has doubts about that, this video does a great job of putting the issues in perspective:
In the long run Nex that barely affects Europe especially considering the fact Europe has been actively diversifying it's energy supply... What's next special operation in Azerbaijan and Turkey? Again Europe is slowly moving away from fossil fuels and there's plenty of suppliers other than Russia anyways despite their meddling.
Russia needs to sell fuel it's that simple and the West will be no longer buying.
