Germany, one of the European countries most dependent on Russia in the field of energy since before the war in Ukraine, announced on Sunday that it has succeeded in reducing this dependence significantly, especially with regard to coal and oil.

In a report issued by the Ministry of Economy, Germany said that its dependence on Russian oil imports fell in recent weeks to 12%, compared to 35% previously.

The ministry noted however that the reliance on Russian gas is still high, although it also decreased to 35% compared to 55% before the start of the Russian invasion on February 24.
