The day before, July 25, Gazprom announced the third reduction in gas supplies to Germany via Nord Stream this summer. The volume of gas supplies decreased initially from 167 million to 100 million cubic meters. m of gas per day, and then another third. From July 27, gas pumping will drop to 33 million cubic meters. m— 20% of the design capacity of the gas pipeline.
June declines in Gazprom explained by the lack of a turbine, which was being repaired in Canada. Its removal from there was hampered by the conditions of the sanctions imposed against Russia.

The German authorities and the management of Siemens Energy did not agree with the explanations of Gazprom, seeing political motives rather than technical conditions in the reasons for the reduction in supplies (Moscow rejected these accusations). German Vice Chancellor Robert Habeck stressed at the end of July that there were no technical reasons that could force the Russian side to reduce supplies. At the same time, he noted that the decision of Gazprom was not unexpected, but caused irritation. “They didn't even have the guts to say, 'We're in an economic war,'” Khabek pointed out.
Official Berlin fears that Russia may completely stop gas supplies via Nord Stream, even a shortage of this fuel threatens to stop market processes in Germany, Habek warned. He clarified: “We are talking about people who will lose their jobs, and regions that will lose entire industrial complexes.”
The EU countries are discussing measures to save gas consumption. According to DPA, the corresponding plan of the European Commission was agreed upon on the night of July 26. It provides for a voluntary reduction in gas consumption by 15% within eight months— from August 1 to March 31, 2023.
