According to the Vietnam News Agency correspondent in Germany, speaking to the Federal Assembly on March 23, Prime Minister Olaf Scholz affirmed that in the short term, Germany cannot eliminate energy supplies from Russia.

According to Scholz, the sanctions against Russia related to Moscow’s special military operation in Ukraine have had a heavy impact on the German people, not only because of high fuel prices. He affirmed that the German government acts on the principle that sanctions should not harm European countries more than Russia.

However, he also confirmed that the state will increase the bailout package for people due to high energy prices. In addition, Prime Minister Scholz emphasized the goal of increasing the use of renewable energy and using energy more efficiently.
