Nord Stream 1: Russia cuts Europe gas supply for second time – BBC News

Russia has cut the amount of the gas it sends to Europe by shutting the key Nord Stream 1 pipeline for the second time this summer.

It said the latest restrictions would last for three days, and were necessary to allow repairs.

Russia has already significantly reduced its energy exports to the continent, sending prices soaring, but denies using gas as a political weapon.

Europe has historically been very reliant on Russian gas to meet its energy needs.
