Berlin – Economics Minister Robert Habeck (Greens) wants to take away the Germans' fear of a collapse in the gas market.

In the TV talk "Markus Lanz" on Wednesday evening (July 6), he said that the federal government would use all means to secure the gas supply in Germany.

Asked about a possible collapse of the market, Habeck said: "This is now this moment of 'Whatever it takes', it will not happen".

The phrase "Whatever it takes" is based on statements by the former head of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi.

The Italian had once promised to save the euro with this "whatever is necessary".

With a view to the danger that Russia's President Vladimir Putin would turn off the gas supply to Germany completely, Habeck emphasized: "We are not just passive.

We don't have to stand by in amazement at what's happening there." After all, it was also possible to maintain security of supply in Germany despite a 60 percent reduction in gas supplies.

Robert Habeck talks about expensive winters at Lanz: "It can sometimes be a monthly income"

However, citizens would have to be prepared for an expensive winter.

The price increases in autumn and winter 2022/23 would be “in the four-digit range per household.

And that can also be a monthly income for a family.” In the opinion of the Green politician, saving remains the order of the day.

In order to save gas in view of the throttling of Russian deliveries, less gas is to be used to produce electricity - instead, more coal-fired power plants are to be used again.

The Bundestag is expected to vote on the relevant changes to the law late Thursday evening.

The Union, on the other hand, is vigorously pleading for the German nuclear reactors, which are supposed to be shut down at the end of the year, to continue to run.
