- Russian authorities keep taking steps to slice Russia’s energy supplies toward the West, with Moscow’s advance notice it could deliver more oil to Asia when a cost cap arranged by the Group of Seven comes into force.
- In the meantime, a top Gazprom official has said that petroleum gas supplies to Europe through the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline won’t continue until Siemens Energy fixes defective hardware.
Gazprom ended all courses through the pipeline on Friday after it identified an oil spill in a turbine motor at the Portovaya blower station and said it would remove supplies until the issue was fixed.
On Saturday, Siemens Energy said the spillage is definitely not a technical justification behind halting gas moves through the pipeline.
In Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy praised Ukrainian warriors who obliterated a Russian rocket stockroom and promised a reaction to an assault on his old neighborhood of Kryvyi Rih.
