The decision was announced by Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov this morning.
247 – The Russian government, led by Vladimir Putin, has announced the official shutdown of gas supplies to Europe, due to the sanctions imposed by the West, according to him. reportage From the Financial Times. “Russian gas supplies to Europe via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline will not be fully restored until the West lifts sanctions on Moscow for its invasion of Ukraine,” the Kremlin said.
The report notes that “Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for President Vladimir Putin, blamed the sanctions of the European Union, the United Kingdom and Canada for Russia’s failure to supply gas through the main pipeline, which supplies gas to Germany from St. Petersburg through the Baltic Sea.”
“The problems with pumping gas arose due to the sanctions imposed by Western countries on our country and various companies,” the Interfax news agency quoted Peskov as saying. “There are no other causes that could have caused this pumping problem.”
Peskov’s comments were the Kremlin’s most difficult position to date: for the European Union to lift its sanctions in exchange for Russia’s resumption of gas shipments to the mainland.
Russia still supplies Europe with gas via Soviet-era gas pipelines through Ukraine that have remained open despite the special military operation, as well as the South Stream gas pipeline through Turkey.
