    On July 13, local time, German State Secretary Jörg Kuchis said that Germany will soon stop importing coal and oil
    from Russia.

    Kuchis said Germany will stop importing Russian coal from August 1 and Russian oil from December 31, which will also fundamentally change Germany's energy supply
    Previously, Russia's coal and oil accounted for more than
    40% of German imports.
    But Mr.
    Kuchis also acknowledges that it is more difficult
    to get rid of its dependence on Russian gas than coal and oil.
    He said that the EU imports about 158 billion cubic meters of natural gas from Russia every year, while the United States and Qatar can provide only 30 billion cubic meters of liquefied natural gas to Europe, and there is a huge gap
    between the two.

    Germany is currently building four LNG receiving terminals with a view to filling the gap
    in gas supply.
    The German government hopes that two of these terminals will be operational as early as early next year
