“May 2022 was one of the coldest in the European part of Russia in the entire history of observations.

Against this background, gas supplies to Russian consumers through the Unified Gas Supply System reached record daily figures 22 times in 10 years, ”the company said in a Telegram statement.

It is specified that most of the records were in the second half of May, and "from May 3 to May 5, the absolute historical daily maximum for this month was updated three times."

Earlier, Gazprom confirmed the cessation of gas supplies to the Danish company Ørsted, as well as to the Shell division in Germany due to non-payment in rubles.
