So Russia is curbing pure fuel provides to Europe in the mean time. Formally, it is as a consequence of a turbine that is caught in Canada due to sanctions. Scheduled upkeep additionally begins on July 11 and runs for 2 weeks.

German chancellor Scholz underscored that along with his newest remark. He stated that Russia is utilizing power as a political weapon and that “nobody believes in technical issues with provide issues.”
