Residents of Germany rushed to buy firewood


On the eve of a possible energy crisis associated with high gas prices and a possible reduction or cessation of fuel supplies from Russia, residents of Germany are actively stocking up on firewood and coal.


In Germany, coal prices are pegged to the cost of gas, and if the latter rises in price, so will fossil fuels. In many cities of the country, along with central heating, stoves have been preserved in houses, and residents are stocking up on firewood for the next heating season.

The Germans are currently in serious discussions about a possible shutdown of the gas. So, Gazprom announced its withdrawal from the Gazprom-Germany subsidiary, and how this will affect gas prices in the country is still unknown.

FRG residents' concern about fuel shortages is largely due to Russia's recent decision to sell its energy resources to unfriendly countries for rubles. In the meantime, Berlin is expressing its readiness to pay for gas from the Russian Federation only in European currency.

Meanwhile, in the German the economy crisis processes are intensifying, which is manifested in an increase in prices for essential goods. Thus, at the moment, the growth of annual inflation is almost 6 percent, while the demand for vegetable oil and flour has grown by 123 and 206 percent, respectively.

    Look at it and think. Sometimes they say about "the whole world is against it."
    There is no whole world. There is an attempt to create such an impression (China showed the map "of the whole world"). And there are certain Western media (and their major social networks and websites) that successfully create this and pull the blanket as they want it to be seen. Rhetoric and propaganda. And there is temporary pressure on some neutrals. This is a bubble - all this media hysteria that is being created by Western media resources. They go out into the street there, these people, live their lives and they don’t really care (and then there will be more - people will get tired of this media occasion), go to the Internet or TV in the evening and again a flurry of all this.
    Recently, such a media reason in the Western world was "Negrims" and all these Black Matter, worship, etc. The world will switch, as they get tired, and the economy. strain, the more they touch them, the more they will start spitting faster.
    Soon people there will be more and more dissatisfied because they are tired of this topic. Emotions will be replaced by some apathy and fatigue. And as soon as this starts, there will be more and more protests and other dissatisfaction, since the policies of their countries will harm them too - ordinary people. This is only as long as Western countries (company) manage to warm up their audience and pursue their interests.

    I suppose that there will come a time when Western people will be annoyed with their politicians and the media because of the topic of Ukraine, and objectivity will begin to show through even further to the West, and even further there Western ordinary people will reconsider their attitude to the situation. So far, yes - info war, sensation, playing on emotions, using your resource - one-sided presentation of information and filtering objectionable.

    Nonsense. We have half of Russia burning wood and coal. And nothing. My mother has gas and two more houses down the street have gas ... the rest is firewood .... This is how half of the Kursk villages and villages live. On a national scale - yes, probably even more than half. At such a price for connection as we connected, it was possible to heat firewood for another 40 years and not bathe. And how much hemorrhoids after connecting - checks, bypasses, extortions, .... if the boiler breaks down - to change the new circulation of money and documents ....
