Ukraine LIVE: Cares more about his gas! EU brutally attacked as Putin’s troops advance | World | News
Germany will be left without gas within three winter months if Russia cuts its supplies fully, a top energy chief has predicted.
After Moscow slashed gas flows through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline to Germany by 60 percent last week, the country’s economy minister, Robert Habeck, said he hoped rationing wouldn’t be necessary to get through the coming winter, though couldn’t rule it out.
But the boss of the German regulatory office for gas and other essential supplies warned such a measure would be inevitable if Russia goes ahead with further cuts.
Klaus Müller, President of the Federal Network Agency, warned: “If the storage facilities in Germany were one hundred percent full and we experienced an average winter, we would be able to supply ourselves for just 2.5 months if we went without Russian gas.
“Then, the storage facilities would be empty.”
