Germany Gains Independence from Russian Gas, Oil and Coal: Schultz

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that his country became independent of gas, oil and coal supplies from Russia, which did not lead to an economic crisis.

“We have gained independence from the supply of gas, coal and oil from Russia. A year ago, no one expected that we would easily get out economically from a situation where there are no more gas supplies from Russia to Germany and to many regions of Europe,” Scholz said.

Schultz emphasized: “We succeeded … and what some expected did not happen. There is no economic crisis in Germany, no gas shortage or anything like that.”

Since the beginning of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, Western countries, led by the United States, have taken the initiative to impose unilateral sanctions against Russia, and many European countries have refrained from buying Russian oil and tried to set a price ceiling. on it, trying to prevent other countries from buying it.

Earlier, the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, said that the refusal of all countries to buy Russian oil would create problems and lead to an imbalance in the global oil market.

Borrell told the Hindustan Times: “We know the oil market has to be balanced, and if everyone in the world doesn’t buy Russian oil, we’re in trouble because the market is going to be very unbalanced.”
