German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said, on Saturday, that the Russian war on Ukraine is a “difficult” test for Germany, calling on his people to “stay united and continue their efforts to save energy.”
In a televised New Year’s message, Scholz praised his people’s efforts to save energy amid the energy crisis caused by the war.
He also called on the Germans to “continue to withstand the energy crisis during the next year.”
The German official added, “Many people are concerned about the Russian-Ukrainian war, as everyone felt the impact of the conflict on their daily lives, especially while shopping at the supermarket, at the gas station, or paying electricity and gas bills.”

He urged the German people to continue saving energy, saying that “the gas tanks are full thanks to the energy that has been saved in recent months.”
“This energy saving campaign will be important in the coming months, so I want to thank you today,” Schulz concluded.
