Over the last five decades, Germany has developed an enormous energy dependence on Russia. Even today, despite all the efforts made after the invasion of Ukraine, Russian gas still accounts for 40% of all gas consumed by Germany. Yet now Putin seems ready to shut off the pipelines and let Europe freeze for the winter if they do not agree to his demands.

How on earth did the Germans fail to take security of supply and political risk into account when designing their energy system? Who exactly is responsible for this gigantic mess? And what could be even more important for the future: What could happen if Russian gas supplies to Europe’s biggest powerhouse are finally cut off? In this video we tell you many details pertaining tot all these questions.
