Economy minister: Embargo on Russian gas impossible for Germany

BERLIN, May 12 (PRIME) -- Germany is unable to impose an embargo on Russian natural gas now, German Vice Chancellor and Economy Minister Robert Habeck said in a news conference on Thursday.

УWe are currently unable to implement the gas embargo now. I have said that repeatedly. If Е the Russian supplies are withdrawn, our gas storages are 40% full. Other volumes are pumped through the European LNG terminals Е The prerequisites that we have to create to survive the winter if the Russian supplies are stopped are also non-existent,Ф he said.

For now, Berlin is only ready to consider an embargo on Russian oil, and even then it will not leave Germany unscathed. Its economy will not crumble, but prices will grow, and commercial chains will be disrupted, he said.
