The Living Force
I have heard about this though Nuoviso (now NuoFlix.de), in their "Home Office" in a conversation with Tomas Röper recently, who told that Germany only had ordered 70% for this winter, compared to what they normally order.Sorry if it was posted in some other thread and I missed it, but today many Russian Telegram channels (including RT) shared the following video that supposedly was shown in Germany as an instruction to the public what to do in case of gas or electricity shortages.
You can find the video here.
I wonder if it is real, through I guess this being reposted by RT maybe gives it some credibility. And also wonder if it is actually being shown on the German TV.
Last winter, which was one of the colder ones on record, lead to a total consumption of 70% of their total, where 30% remained. However, if you have no margins for the upcoming winter - an it get's cold again, they will most likely in time announce restrictions for the people due to shortages !
Apparently it is now too late to order more gas from Russia. You always have to do that in good time before. Austria on the other hand, did fill up their "tanks" in good time (and the gas comes via Turkey).
So, if any shortage arises upcoming winter, it is the German administration / Government of Germany which is responsible. Russia is ready to deliver, but you have to put in orders for gas delivery.
