Vladimir Putin continues to “play his dirty games” by blackmailing Europe by cutting gas supplies which is getting “worse every month.”
Moscow has been accused of inflicting “terror” on Europe as Gazprom has cut their supplies to Germany to around 20%.
German officials have said there is no technical reason for their state owned Gazprom to limit supplies of gas and the country are facing rationing supplied to keep homes warm this winter.
Nord Stream 1 was shut for a 10-day maintenance break earlier this month which fuelled fears that gas supplies might not resume at all to Europe.
Five days ago they resumed at a reduced capacity and Gazprom have now cut supplies to around half that of current levels.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky warned, “The gas blackmail of Europe, which only gets worse every month, is needed by a terrorist state to make the life of every European worse.”
Czech Industry Minister Jozef Sikel warned, “The winter is coming and we don’t know how cold it will be.
“But what we know for sure is that Putin will continue to play his dirty games in misusing and blackmailing by gas supplies.”
European Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson said, “We have to be ready for the possible supply cuts from Russia at any moment.
“We have to act right now.”
