Die Welt Readers View German Chancellor Scholz’s Energy Policy as Irresponsible
MOSCOW, September 23 – RIA Novosti. Readers of the German edition Mold Welt He was angered by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s statement a few months ago that the country could survive the winter, although there was no certainty on this. Many thought it shameful to boast of such achievements as the leader of a great European state.
Earlier, Scholz said gas storage facilities are now “filled like never before”, which gives us hope for a stable energy supply in cold weather.
Many users did not share the Chancellor’s optimistic mood, reminding him that such “successes” of the country are due to the narrow-minded policy of the government.
“The chancellor of the world’s fourth largest economy says we have enough gas to ‘hold through the winter’. Is it just me or are we really turning into a developing country?” asked another.
“Yes, we will survive the winter only with exorbitant prices and a bankrupt industry,” the user said.
“They (Scholz and Habek) will definitely survive the winter, but what about small and medium businesses? The actions of the political establishment are irresponsible… It is impossible to predict how many companies will go bankrupt before the cold weather starts,” the user complained.
“Who would have thought a few months ago that it would be possible to corner the country’s economy so quickly?” – wrote the second.
Western countries, including Germany, are facing rising energy prices and rising inflation due to the sanctions imposed on Moscow and the policy of giving up on Russian fuel. Due to the increase in fuel prices, especially gas, the industry in the West lost its competitive advantages to a great extent, which also affected other sectors of the economy. Also, the United States and European countries have faced record inflation for decades.
