Russia remained Germany’s largest coal supplier in 2022, despite Western sanctions. This is reported by the German publication Bild, citing the German Union of Coal Importers.
Last year, Russia sold 13 million tons of coal to Germany. This is 37% less than a year ago – the reason for the reduction was anti-Russian sanctions. At the same time, the German authorities increased their purchases of raw materials by 8%, importing 44.4 million tonnes from other countries.
Among the states that supplied Germany with coal, besides Russia, the leaders were the United States, which sent 9.4 million tons to Germany, and Australia with 6.3 million tons .
