Russia Denies Pipeline Turbine In Transit. Russia on Friday rejected a Reuters report that a turbine for the Nord Stream 1 pipeline is stuck in transit. The report alleges that Moscow has yet to approve the return of the turbine from Germany to Russia.

Germany instead says Russia is using gas as a political weapon. Bloomberg Reuters
