German Regulator Fears Breakdown of Russian Gas Deliveries

  • FNA chief says worried about upcoming Nordstream 1 maintenance
  • Mueller says consumers to be ‘shocked’ by latest energy bills

Warning of a potential total breakdown of Russian gas supplies, Germany’s top power grid regulator called for greater efforts to save energy.
