Moscow (dpa) - Moscow is not to blame for a sharp reduction in German gas deliveries, the Kremlin says, again denying accusations that the reduction in flows via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline is politically motivated.
"The Russian Federation is fulfilling all its obligations," Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday, according to the Interfax news agency.
Peskov blamed sanctions for a delay in repair works. According to Russia, a Siemens turbine for the pipeline is stuck overseas.
