MUELHEIM AN DER RUHR, GERMANY - AUGUST 03: German Chancellor Olaf Scholz poses in front of the Siemens gas turbine intended for the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline in Russia at a Siemens Energy facility on August 03, 2022 in Muelheim an der Ruhr, Germany. The turbine underwent maintenance in Canada and was supposed to already be delivered to Russia for installation back into the pipeline, but Russian energy company Gazprom has so far refused to accept the repaired turbine, citing insufficient documentation. German authorities have refuted Gazprom's claim and say the Russian government is stalling. Russia is still supplying gas to Germany via Nord Stream 1, albeit at a much reduced flow. The two countries are at odds over the ongoing Russian war in Ukraine.
