Some media reported that Russia allegedly intends to cut gas supplies to Europe as much as possible until the EU lifts anti-Russian sanctions.
“This is a completely wrong link. Firstly, not the Kremlin, but Gazprom. It is a supplier. Secondly, Gazprom supplies as much as necessary and as much as possible. Technical capabilities for pumping have decreased. Why? Because the technical maintenance of the units is difficult due to the restrictions and sanctions imposed by the EU,” Peskov said.
The sanctions do not allow prompt maintenance, replacement of spare parts, overhaul and other routine maintenance of the equipment necessary for pumping gas.
“As these works are completed, Gazprom will be able to pump more. Gazprom has been and remains a reliable guarantor of the fulfillment of all its obligations, but it cannot guarantee pumping if imported units cannot be serviced due to European sanctions,” Peskov concluded. .
