The Prime Minister of Poland has said that the country has begun taking steps to cut Russian Oil imports, and Germany has issued a gas warning to its citizens over the Russian/Ukraine conflict.
- German Economy Minister, Robert Habeck, said, "There have been several comments from the Russian side that if this (payments in rubles) doesn't happen, then the supplies will be stopped."
- He continued, "In order to be prepared for this situation I have today triggered the early warning level."
- Habeck added, "On average we in Germany imported 55% of our gas from Russia in recent years, and this has now already gone down to 40%."
- He continued, "We are in a situation where I have to say this clearly, every kilowatt-hour of energy saved helps. And that's why I would like to combine the triggering of the warning level with an appeal to companies and private consumers to help Germany, help Ukraine, by saving gas or energy as a whole."
