Gas flow from Russia to Germany via the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline was halted on Tuesday afternoon as fuel levels dropped to zero, according to operator Cascade.
International agencies point out that the flow of gas from Germany to Poland went from 1,451 million kilowatt hours at 1:00 pm (local time) to zero at the German point Malno.
The Yamal-Europe pipeline, which normally runs west, was replaced on March 15, when recommendations for sending gas to Germany fell to zero, while Polish customers bought gas from Germany.

Russia has announced it will arrange for foreign companies to pay in rubles for gas exports from Russian territory from Thursday, raising fears of supply sanctions as Western nations have so far rejected Moscow’s currency exchange request.
Although gas flow to Germany via the Yamal-Europe has been halted, fuel delivery via the Nortstream 1 pipeline via the Baltic Sea has changed slightly from the previous 24 hours.
Due to sanctions imposed on Russia by the United States and its European allies for military action in eastern Ukraine, the Russian government has announced that gas exports will be charged in rubles to counter the intervention.
