Russia’s decision to further cut gas supplies to Germany and other central European countries have resulted in soaring gas prices.
Critics accuse the Russian government of using gas as a political weapon.
Russian energy firm, Gazprom, explains the latest cut indicating it was needed to allow maintenance work on a turbine.
However, the German government said there was no technical reason for it to limit the supply.
Ukraine has accused Moscow of waging a “gas war” against Europe and cutting supplies to inflict “terror” on people.
Russia has been cutting flows through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline to Germany.
It is now operating at less than a fifth of its normal capacity.
