European households could still freeze during a severe cold snap this winter, despite the continent having almost filled its gas storage facilities, said the head of Gazprom PJSC.

“Winter can be relatively warm, but one week or even five days will be abnormally cold and it’s possible that whole towns and lands, god forbid, will freeze,” Gazprom Chief Executive Officer Alexey Miller said at Russian Energy Week in Moscow on Wednesday.
