Post: The European Commission does not exclude the complete cessation of gas supplies from Russia

The European Commission does not expect a complete cut-off of gas supplies from the Russian Federation, but it does not exclude either.

MOSCOW, 11 July/ Radio Sputnik. Speaking at the Eurogroup meeting, EC Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis said that he does not believe the European Commission (EC) could see a complete stoppage in gas supplies from Russia in the coming months.

He noted that such a development of the event cannot be called fundamental, but at the same time it cannot be ignored.

“No, it’s not fundamental, but it’s not a risk we can ignore.” leads to words to RIA Novosti.

In mid-June, Gazprom was forced to reduce gas pumping via Nord Stream by 60%, as Siemens did not return equipment out of repair in a timely manner due to Canadian sanctions. Later, Canadian Minister of Natural Resources, Jonathan Wilkinson, said that despite the sanctions, Canada would return equipment for Nord Stream at Germany’s request. On July 11, both Nord Stream lines were closed for scheduled maintenance.

Earlier, Sputnik radio reported that Ukraine has called for the cancellation of the decision to return the turbine for Nord Stream.
