Chancellor Germany Olaf Scholz in an interview with the newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung assessed whether the country will be able to survive next winter with an energy crisis.
“Like this year, it can be assumed if nothing unforeseen happens,” he said, answering a related question.
He said that for this it is necessary to continue building new terminals for receiving liquefied natural gas, assuring that fuel will continue to flow into the country from Norway, the United States and the Gulf countries, as well as from the Netherlands.
“In the future, the supply situation should improve, after which prices should also decrease again,” the politician believes.
Earlier, the Public News Service wrote that due to high prices for housing and communal services residents Germany are going to spend the winter in Kaliningrad. The governor of the Kaliningrad region Anton Alikhanov announced their influx.
“Neighbors, by the way, an amazing thing, they come. There are individual Germans who come to us to spend the winter. Because renting an apartment, paying utility bills for four months in Kaliningrad is like one month somewhere in Düsseldorf,” he said.
