Germany's Habeck: Germany's Russia-dependent energy model isn't coming back
"Germany's Russia-dependent energy model has failed and isn't coming back," German Economy Minister Robert Habeck said on Monday, as reported by Reuters.
"We have to swallow bitter medicine to make the shift to a new energy model."
"Gas levy will secure supply."
"Alternative to levy would have been a collapse of the German energy system."
"These measures make us less vulnerable to blackmail."
"We need targeted relief to help people with gas levy."
