Brandenburg Prime Minister Dietmar Woidke urged the German government to allocate about €2 billion in aid to adapt the Rosneft company’s oil refinery (refinery) in Schwedt according to the consequences of an embargo on oil supplies from Russia. This has been reported TASS.
“I expect the need to be around €2 billion,” Woidke said.
He noted that he plans to request this amount from the federal government.
Woidke also criticized the German Vice-Chancellor, Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate Protection, Robert Habek, who did not rule out the possibility of fuel shortages in East Germany as a result of the cessation of Russian oil imports. According to Woidke, all regions of Germany need a reliable supply.
The Brandenburg Chancellor also said that fuel shortages will negatively affect the economy, population and commuter traffic in the German metropolitan area. Woidke noted that these situations should be excluded.
