08:18 Germany prepares to turn off the Russian gas tap –

Germany has made all preparations in case Russia closes the gas tap or the European Union decides to stop buying Russian gas in retaliation for the war in Ukraine. That said the German minister Robert Habeck (Economics) on a radio on Wednesday. germanyfunkI

According to Habeck, Germany was saved for this winter and next summer. Precautions are being taken for the coming winter. He also pointed to new legislation planned to ensure gas storage is stocked for the winter.

“That is why we are also taking measures for the worst-case scenario, which has not yet happened because the Russians have surrendered,” said the minister.

He added that in the worst case scenario, Berlin could keep its coal-fired power stations on standby and potentially operational, although the country would like to switch to renewable energy sources in the medium term.
