"Everyone agrees - technical specialists, Russian technical specialists - that 100% of gas can now be supplied via Nord Stream," TASS quoted him as saying.

According to Habek, Russia's statements about technical problems are Moscow's pretext for reducing fuel supplies to Europe.

On June 9, Russian gas supplies via Nord Stream were reduced due to planned technical work.

According to Gazprom, the supply volumes were limited due to the untimely return of equipment from repair by Siemens.

After that, Gazprom announced that it was stopping the operation of another gas turbine engine of the German concern Siemens at the Portovaya CS.

Russian Ambassador to Ottawa Oleg Stepanov said that Russia is not involved in contacts between Germany and Canada regarding the supply of equipment for the Nord Stream gas pipeline, which were complicated by the imposed sanctions.
