Putin says Russia will meet its gas commitments to Europe but warns against Nord Stream cuts

Russian President

Vladimir Putin has said Russia will fulfill its commitments to supply natural gas to Europe, but warned that flows through the Nord Stream pipeline could soon be limited if sanctions prevent further maintenance on its components.

The European Union, meanwhile, has prepared for life without an adequate supply of Russian gas, rolling out guidelines to ration fuel across the bloc. Nord Stream, Russia’s main gas artery to Europe, is currently down due to regular maintenance and European governments fear the Kremlin will restore flow when work ends on Thursday. A prolonged outage could prompt governments to ration energy, hurt industry and hurt already fragile economic growth.
