German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that his country has become independent of gas, oil and coal supplies from Russia, without this leading to an economic crisis, according to Russia Today.


"We gained our independence from gas, coal and oil supplies from Russia," Scholz said. "A year ago, no one would have expected us to escape economically so easily from a situation where there is no more gas supplies from Russia to Germany and to many parts of Europe."


Schulz stressed: "We succeeded .. and what some expected did not happen, there is no economic crisis in Germany, there is no shortage of gas or anything like that."


Since the launch of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, Western countries, led by the United States, have taken the initiative to impose unilateral sanctions on Russia, and many European countries have refrained from buying Russian oil and tried to impose a price ceiling on it, in an attempt to prevent other countries from buying it.
