German chancellor calls for energy embargo

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has said Europe’s sanctions on Russia could be “not a short-term measure but a longer conflict”.

He emphasised the need for Germany to stop its dependency on Russian coal, gas and oil imports “as quickly as possible” and “in the greatest intensity” during a press conference in Berlin.

According to Scholz, “Europe, together with its friends, has launched the harshest sanctions ever seen against such a big country. And they show that they have an impact”

“A part of this is also thinking about tools that have this effect on the aggressor but at the same time have minimal repercussions on economic development opportunities at home and that we can uphold these sanctions.”
