Russian gas: What happens if Germany runs out of it?

The German government has announced it is activating an early warning plan in preparation for possible shortages in gas deliveries from Russia.  Economic Minister Robert Habeck said a crisis team was established to closely monitor gas supplies.  This follows Moscow’s demand for payment in rubles which Germany and other importers have rejected.

Habeck – who’s from the environmentalist Green Party – also urged German industry and households to try and conserve energy.
