“Scheduled maintenance work on the TurkStream gas pipeline, scheduled for the period from June 21 to June 28, 2022, has been completed.

Gas transportation was resumed today at 20:00 Moscow time,” the Telegram message says.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, in an interview with A Haber, earlier stated that the state was unable to abandon Russian gas in the short term.

Russia's Permanent Representative to the EU Vladimir Chizhov noted that Europe's refusal of Russian energy carriers would be "to a certain extent suicidal."
