Russia Makes Gas Pipeline A Political Weapon

PIPELINE

Russia’s Gazprom announces that gas flows through the Nord Stream 1 natural gas pipeline to Europe will not resume until sanctions against Russia are lifted.

This is seen as a development in its war against Ukraine, by using the gas pipeline as a form of economic blackmail. It comes at a time when many countries are facing political upheaval over rising energy costs, and can only serve to worsen the situation.
