Gazprom stops supply to Germany


Deutsche Welle English reports: Russia’s state-owned energy company Gazprom has shut down gas supplies via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline to Western Europe for three days.⁣⁣

The energy giant said there would be no gas flow to Germany between August 31 and September 3 due to maintenance on Nord Stream 1. It said there is “necessary” work at a compressor station that needed to be carried out.

Germany, which is heavily dependent on Russian gas, has accused Moscow of using energy as a “weapon.” Russia insists the disruptions are due to sanctions following its war on Ukraine.⁣⁣
