German Chancellor Olaf Scholz named Russia is an “unreliable supplier” of raw materials and accused it of “no longer fulfilling its contractual supply obligations.”
“Something that always happened even during the Cold War no longer works: Russia is no longer a reliable supplier of energy,” Scholz said at a press conference in Berlin following a meeting of the ruling parties in Germany (Social Democrats, Greens ). and liberals), which lasted about 19 hours.
The Chancellor stated that the consequences of the situation in Ukraine are being felt in Germany. He confirmed that the German side intends to continue to increase support for Kyiv, and blamed Russia for the difficulties that are also in Germany.
“Our country is going through a difficult time. But we will survive this winter. We have been looking for answers to the question of what will happen if it is the EU since December last year with the Minister of Economics and a consultant to the Chancellor’s office,” added Scholz. At the same time, he believes that Germany can cope with difficulties due to the fact that “it began to prepare for this in advance.”
Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev, commenting on the words of Scholz, said on Sunday that Germany “emerges as an enemy of Russia.”
“Russia is no longer a reliable supplier of energy,” German Chancellor Scholz thought with excitement. Here are those on! Offended again… Germany: a) an unfriendly country, b) introduced a verdict against the entire economy of Russia and its citizens, c) supplies Ukraine with lethal weapons directed against our Armed Forces. In other words, a hybrid war declared by Russia. Consequently, Germany acts as an enemy of Russia. And this uncle is surprised that the Germans have some minor problems with gas. Just like in a children’s joke: “And they still swear that I was picking my nose …”, – wrote Medvedev in his Telegram channel.

Habek stressed that diversification will be developed in Europe in the future.
