Russian gas: What happens if Germany runs out of it? | DW News



The German government has announced it is activating an early warning plan in preparation for possible shortages in gas deliveries from Russia. Economy Minister Robert Habeck said a crisis team was being established to closely monitor gas supplies. This follows Moscow’s demand for payment in rubles which Germany and other importers have rejected.
Habeck – who’s from the environmentalist Green Party – also urged German industry and households to try and conserve energy.

  1. Europes are the pawns of United States, let’s see how long Europe survives without Russian gas and oil, today or tomorrow Europes has to buy Russian oil and gas by Russian rubbles. Viva Russia

  2. Let's just watch closely what the government will do next in the future, especially under the leadership of Scholz, who obviously has no humane conscience. Whole Germany can be completely self-reliant and independent from Russian energy IF THEY REALLY WANT. But if the German political oligarchs don't want it by maneuvering behind the scenes, then we will see the results in the future.

  3. That will go over like a fart in the wind! Petro dollar crash and recession here we come- all for Ukraine. I don’t care about Ukraine- take the L zelensky

  4. I am an Indian, If I tell our Govt that I will pay my monthly bill in Pakistani Rupees and not in Indian Rupee….The Govt will laugh at me ..for obvious reasons……

    So when you buy gas from Russia , you have to pay in Rubles…..where does the question of Blackmail comes…..????

  5. How completely idiotic the German government has naively increased its dependency over the last 15 years! 12 years ago Georgia then Modavia, Donbass and Crimea.. but up and down babble Energy is never a weapon. Greatness brings hubris and arrogance.

  6. Germany should stay out of this conflict anyway. America poked Russia and should pay the price. It should be clear, in 2014 Lindsay Graham and John McCain meet with a group of Asov Battalion Leaders and promised support to fight the Russians in the Donbas. It was all about provoking Russia to intervene and as consequence to weaken Russia. By pushing Germany to support Ukraine the US achieved the goal, weaken Russia and keep Germany and hence the EU down.
