Co-chairman of the right-wing populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) party Tino Khrupalla commented on the opening of the country’s first floating liquefied natural gas terminal (LNG). In his opinion, this measure will not help Germany deal with the current energy crisis.

“5 billion cubic meters of liquefied gas per year cover only 6% of Germany’s needs for gas. It has not been finally established where and by what special ships the necessary gas will be delivered to Wilhelmshaven in the future, ”the politician said.

Khrupalla once again called on the German authorities to abandon anti-Russian sanctions. In his opinion, it is necessary to ensure the possibility of gas supplies via Nord Stream.
