Switzerland is directly affected
After reviewing the pipeline, Putin delivers only 40% of the gas
Once Nord Stream 1 is up and running, Russia wants to supply gas to Europe again. However, much less than before. Two people familiar with Russia’s export plans told Reuters news agency. This contains political explosives.
Now it became clear what many experts expected. Russia uses the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline review only as an excuse to shut down the gas tap in Europe. After repairing for ten days, the gas should flow west again. However, much less than before. This was reported by the “Bild Zeitung”. It is only 40 percent. This hits the West hard. Russian President Vladimir Putin, 69, has drawn one of his terrifying jokes.
Reuters news agency relies on two insiders. It is now finally clear how much less gas goes to Germany – and thus also to Switzerland, which gets most of its gas from Germany. Nord Stream 1 is scheduled to go online again on July 21. Just stupid: According to the Kremlin, a turbine that was repaired in Canada is still missing. It is unclear when it will arrive.
Ukraine protests sharply
Days ago, the central spare parts caused problems in the political arena. Russian energy group Gazprom has asked Siemens Energy to return the turbines of the Nord Stream 1 natural gas pipeline. The company has been asked to start the return process.
Ukraine strongly protested Canada’s delivery of repaired gas turbines to Russia. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky (44) said that in view of this unacceptable exception to the sanctions regime against Russia, the Canadian ambassador was recalled. (pbe)
