Gas pumping through Nord Stream will be reduced to one-fifth of its capacity from Wednesday, Gazprom said.
Now the Nord Stream gas pipeline is operating at 40% of its capacity. Canada has already returned the repaired turbine to Germany, it was removed from sanctions, but Gazprom refuses to receive it for unclear reasons.
Now Gazprom claims that it is necessary to repair another one, and the shutdown of the third one is on the way.
At the same time, the existing gas transportation system of Ukraine alone is enough to fully provide Europe with gas without any Nord Stream, but Gazprom refuses to increase pumping in this direction.
There are other routes as well. For example, the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline, which Putin completely turned off on the night of March 30.
Putin certainly enjoys the reaction of the Europeans. It seems to him that he is successfully pressing Europe on the throat, and they are already wheezing there.
In fact, the effect will be the opposite. He’s finished.
