Earlier, German Economy Minister Robert Habeck said that “half the gas that Germany supplied to itself was lost” because Russia turned off the gas valve. Also, the pipelines are now broken, which means that Russian supplies will not resume for the foreseeable future.
Heinz-Christian Strache claimed that this was clearly not true. In an interview with RIA Novosti, he said that Russia was ready to continue gas supplies to the EU and Germany. However, Ukraine and Poland prevented further pipeline deliveries, Nord Stream 1 was destroyed, while Russia was not admitted to the investigation. Nord Stream 2 was decommissioned by German decision, Strache recalled.
According to the former Austrian vice chancellor, Habek and other German politicians are afraid to tell the truth to their people, because in that case they would have to admit that they themselves are responsible for the current situation.
