German minister expects successive blackouts in his country

German Minister of Economy and Climate Protection Robert Habeck warned of the risk of disruptions and further disruptions in the operation of energy facilities in the public service sector with the continued interruption of Russian gas supplies.

Khabik, who also holds the position of vice chancellor, pointed out that after the recent reduction in gas flow through the Nord Stream pipeline by 60 percent, “it is logical to expect this to continue.”

According to him, Germany should be ready for a further reduction in Russian gas supplies, as this is in line with Moscow’s strategy to “undermine European unity.”

The minister stressed that the shortage of gas is likely to lead to a deep recession, “and serious problems with electricity supply. If one or more companies fail, there will be a domino effect that will quickly lead to a deep recession.”

The Minister noted that electricity supply companies can exercise the right to increase prices, despite existing contractual obligations.
