France: Russia is using gas as a weapon of war

Nord Stream 1

 "Very clearly Russia is using gas as a weapon of war and we must prepare for the worst case scenario of a complete interruption of supplies,” France's Energy Transition Minister Agnes Pannier-Runacher said on French public radio Tuesday, after Engie announced it would be receiving less natural gas from Gazprom starting Tuesday.

Engie said Gazprom was cutting its deliveries "due to a disagreement between both sides over the execution of contracts". 

However, it also said it has “already secured the necessary volumes to guarantee supplies for its clients and for its own needs"

Russia had already reduced its gas supplies to France in response to European Union military and diplomatic backing for Ukraine.
