Scholz Says Russia Is Blocking Shipment Of Turbine Needed To Hike Gas Flows.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz stands next to a gas turbine meant to be transported to the compressor station of the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline in Russia during a visit to Siemens Energy in Muelheim an der Ruhr, Germany, on August 3.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz stands next to a gas turbine meant to be transported to the compressor station of the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline in Russia during a visit to Siemens Energy in Muelheim an der Ruhr, Germany, on August 3.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has accused Moscow of purposely holding up the delivery of a turbine by refusing to submit the paperwork needed to transport the item to Russia, where its installation will allow for increased gas supplies via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline.

"There is no reason why this delivery cannot happen," Scholz said on August 3 while standing next to the turbine.

Moscow only had to say that "they want to have the turbine and provide the necessary customs information for transport to Russia," the German leader added.
Russian state-owned energy giant Gazprom cut flows through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline to Germany to one-fifth of capacity from July 27, saying the move was necessary because it hadn't received the turbine after it was sent for maintenance. Both Germany and the EU have said there was no technical justification for slowing the flow of gas and said Russia's moves were politically motivated and linked to EU sanctions over Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine. In an interview with RFE/RL on July 26, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said the turbine maintenance excuse was another example of how Russia was trying “every kind of tool and trick” to divide Europe in its stance against the war in Ukraine, which is now in its sixth month.
