Kremlin: Decrease in gas supply not intentional

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday that the reduction of gas flow via the Nord Stream pipeline is "not intentional" but rather the consequence of sanctions imposed by the West, which in turn caused technical issues. Gazprom announced on Tuesday that the gas volume dropped by 40%, accusing German manufacturer Siemens of not carrying out unit maintenance.

Peskov also commented on the European leaders' visit to Kiev, expressing hope they will not "focus on pumping Ukraine with weapons" and warning such action would "extend the suffering of the people."
