Germans are accepting the current high prices and inflation “with great unity” because “most of them understand very well what is at stake,” he said.

“This is a strong response to Putin’s plan to divide our society at the expense of high prices. Putin wants our country to be divided. But we will not fall apart,” the Vice Chancellor said.

The interviewer told him that Chancellor Willy Brandt did the same thing in 1973, when the OPEC countries drastically cut oil supplies. Khabek replied that “what we are experiencing now is more meaningful and deeper than then,” and “a gas shutdown today will hit our economy much harder than the oil shortage then.”
