Petition Summary  

The petitioner alleges that some EU countries are very dependent on Russian gas (i.e. Germany) and that this is a security threat. The petitioner questions the change in Germany’s energy policy from nuclear to gas power plants. Confronted with the war in Ukraine, the petitioner suggests starting to invest in power plants in some EU countries that could be used to supply other EU countries. The petitioner also comments on the risk of buying technological equipment from China as he thinks the Chinese authorities could use it to spy on European interests.
