news of the day

Despite a warming trend, there is still water in the gas.

In particular about the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, which connects Russia and Germany and is still awaiting certification.

The German chancellor assured a group of US senators that the pipeline "would not go ahead" if Russia invaded Ukraine.

A difficult decision when more than 55% of German gas imports come from Russia, a figure up 15 points since 2012.

On the Russian side, transporting 55 billion cubic meters of gas to Germany would represent a significant financial windfall.

In order to better understand the strategic issues, our journalist Marie de Fournas brilliantly looked at the implications of the Nord Stream gas pipeline in light of the Ukrainian conflict.

Germany's gas reserves have fallen to a "worrying" level, below the critical threshold of 40%, the government announced on Wednesday.

"There have been positive signals about Ukraine's decision to act solely on the basis of the Minsk agreements, that's a plus," said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

"But we didn't hear [Ukrainian President Volodymyr] Zelensky say he was ready to deal with it quickly," he said.
