Federal Economics Minister Robert Habeck is preparing for the fact that Russia will no longer supply gas to Europe via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline. "There's still a bit of gas coming through the Ukraine pipeline, but Nord Stream 1 being reopened isn't one of the scenarios I'm assuming," said the Greens politician on ZDF's "heute journal".
A spokesman for Siemens Energy said on Monday that for the time being, the assessment that the reported findings do not constitute a reason for the cessation of operations applies. "Such leaks do not normally affect the operation of a turbine and can be sealed on site," said the spokesman. In the past, too, there had been no standstill due to such oil leaks.
