Europe faces the risk of further cuts of gas supply from 🇷🇺.

We are already getting 75% more gas from other countries than in 2021. But we now need to save gas to fill our storage faster.

Yesterday, EU countries agreed to reduce their gas consumption by 15%. ↓

Korruption, Insiderhandel, #Datenmissbrauch oder Menschenrechtsverletzungen: Immer wieder geben Beschäftigte in Unternehmen oder Behörden wertvolle Hinweise, durch die Rechtsverstöße aufgedeckt oder verhindert werden können. Bisher haben die Hinweisgebenden – sogenannte „#Whistleblower“ – dabei häufig ihre berufliche Karriere aufs Spiel gesetzt. Das soll sich ändern: Die #Bundesregierung will ihren #Schutz deutlich verbessern.

The Russian troops are bombing Ukrainian fields, not allowing for the sowing of crops, looting food stocks and blocking Ukraine’s ports.

Those who keep Putin's war machine running must pay the price.

Today, we take action to add violation of EU sanctions to the list of EU crimes and to confiscate assets of oligarchs violating sanctions to Russia.

EU sanctions must be respected.

#StandWithUkraine

First, we are proposing to make the violation of sanctions an EU crime.

Such action is a criminal offence that threats international peace and security and should be sanctioned firmly throughout the EU.

Those trying to circumvent sanctions must be punished.
