        <p>"It was a very difficult decision," he told reporters during a trip to Kingston, Ontario.

At the same time, Trudeau assured that Canada would continue to unconditionally support Ukraine.

Ottawa on July 9, after numerous requests from Berlin, decided to return to Siemens the turbine for the Nord Stream gas pipeline, which was being repaired in Montreal. Due to the untimely return of the turbine, Nord Stream has been used only at 40% of its maximum capacity since mid-June. The European Commission said Canada’s return of the turbine did not violate EU sanctions against Russia.

Currently, gas supplies via Nord Stream have been stopped due to scheduled repairs. It will last from July 11 to 21, TASS writes.
