In order to ensure security of supply, the federal government had forbidden VNG to withdraw from the contracts or to change prices. Now he is paying partial compensation in the mid three-digit million range, it said. The importer from Leipzig submitted the application because, as a result of the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine, he had to buy gas more expensively than he was allowed to sell it. Günther emphasized that hundreds of municipal utilities and industrial customers depend on VNG. That is why the group is systemically important, said the minister.
