Gas exports from Russia should be replaced, work is underway in this direction, German Economy Minister Robert Habeck said at a briefing in Berlin.

“The goal of this government and my ministry personally is to get rid of this dependence as soon as possible, to gain strategic sovereignty through the rejection of fossil energy… We are engaged in the diversification of energy supplies, but this is not yet complete… Raw materials, metals, and gas are imported in large quantities from Russia and must now be replaced, respectively; a search is underway in other places. We want to provide support in this,” the minister said.
