“Bloody” Oil Won’t Be in Germany

Germany plans to give up Russian oil by the end of the year, even without EU sanctions

European countries cannot agree on an embargo on the purchase of oil from the aggressor country, Russia. The European Union has already adopted five sets of sanctions against Russia, but in none of them can it give up oil. Work on six laws of sanctions in progress. But this does not mean that there will be a ban on Russian services — this does not mean that Russians will soon stop killing Ukrainians.

So, Germany decided to become independent of Russian fuel. If the EU fails to agree on a general ban on oil from the aggressor country, the German government is ready to make its own decision within its own country. Officials declare their readiness to stop oil purchases from Russia until the end of 2022.

Now Berlin has only one problem to solve. The country needs to find a new oil supplier to completely cut off the services of the aggressor. Berlin also notes that before the war 35% of the total volume was purchased from Russia. Now the demand for the import of Russian oil to Germany reduced to 12%.

The authorities are considering using the old Rostock-Schwedt gas pipeline to meet the needs of the country and its inhabitants. Also, one of the airports is planned to provide through a Bavarian oil refinery.
