Germany says not yet possible for EU to cut Russian gas

German Finance Minister Christian Lindner said Monday it was not yet possible for the EU to cut Russian gas imports as a sanction against Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine, since it would do it more harm than just to Russia.

“We have to cut all economic relationship to Russia, but at the moment, it’s not possible to cut the gas supplies. We need some time,” Lindner said as he arrived for talks with his eurozone counterparts in Luxembourg.
