Süddeutsche Zeitung

New US sanctions against Russia will have serious consequences for the energy supply in Germany and Europe, writes Kirsten Westphal of the German Institute for International and Security Affairs in a guest commentary for Süddeutsche Zeitung. “The uncertainty [in the energy markets] will increase,” writes Westphal. “Russia is Europe’s most important energy supplier. That’s why the law seriously affects Europe’s supply security.”
