According to the station, Germany cannot replenish its reserves even by buying oil from other countries, including Kazakhstan. The fact is that the transit of raw materials from there is impossible without the Russian Druzhba pipeline. Therefore, Berlin has to negotiate with Moscow on the delivery of oil.
According to CCTV, all the attempts of the German authorities to solve the problem of the shortage of crude oil were ineffective and provoked a wave of criticism not only from ordinary citizens, but also from the establishment.
The day before, Kazakhstan’s Energy Minister Bolat Akchulakov said that Russia had given verbal consent to the transit of Kazakh oil through its territory via the Druzhba pipeline to Germany. In total, the republic plans to deliver 1.5 million tons of oil to Germany this year through this route.
Earlier, Russian Federation Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak, who oversees the fuel and power complex, said he was “normal in this” and supported Kazakhstan’s transit request.
