The UK appointed a czar to ensure it can keep the lights on this winter as Russia’s war on Ukraine threatens to deepen Europe’s energy crisis.

Jonathan Mills, previously in government as a director of energy strategy, took up the role of director-general of winter resilience earlier this month, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy said in a statement.
