The suspension of Russian gas supplies to Germany via the Yamal-Europe pipeline is not related to the situation around the filling of the second string of Nord Stream-2, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, according to Interfax.
This is a purely commercial story, he commented. “The specific reasons should be asked to Gazprom. There is no connection here,” the spokesman for the Russian president stressed.
The physical supply of Russian gas through the Yamal-Europe pipeline, which runs through Belarus and Poland to Germany, stopped on December 21. The reason for this situation was Gazprom’s decision not to reserve transit capacity.
