Germany Expresses ‘Great Pressure’ on Russian Gas Embargo
Houston (USA), March 8 – Jörg Kukes, Assistant to the German Chancellor for Economic Affairs, told the News Agency that the decision to abandon the import of Russian gas was a great pressure on Germany, and it turned out to be very difficult to replace Russian fuel.
“No, it was huge pressure. It was more than half the size in Germany, and it was obviously very difficult to replace,” Kukes said on the sidelines of the CERAWeek International Energy Conference in Houston.
Meanwhile, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said, in an interview with CNN, that the German economy “easily” survived the refusal of Russian gas, without slipping into a crisis and without experiencing an energy shortage.
