Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In view of the sharp rise in energy prices, the left is calling for German electricity exports to other EU countries to be suspended.

"We need a moratorium on electricity exports from Germany to other European countries," said Dietmar Bartsch, co-group leader of the "Augsburger Allgemeine". "It is difficult to explain to the citizens why the need to save and skyrocketing prices should apply in this country when electricity is exported in large quantities at the same time," he criticized. "The fact that gas is also used for this is not conveyable."

It is absurd "if countries like France only delay the energy transition, then consumers in this country foot the bill, while at the same time electricity prices in Germany are the highest in the EU," said Bartsch.
