The Minister of Economy and Climate Protection, German Vice-Chancellor Robert Habeck said that in the event of a gas shortage, a number of industries would have to stop working.

According to the minister, in this case, all market and economic processes will be interrupted and for a number of industries this will have a catastrophic effect.

“We are not talking about two days or weeks, but a long time. We are talking about people who will then become unemployed, about regions that will lose entire industrial complexes, ”the politician added.
