Russian energy giant Gazprom on Wednesday cut gas flows to Germany via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline to 20% of capacity, raising fears of a complete stoppage ahead of the winter season.

The state company linked the reduction that began at 9.00 am (6.00 GMT) to alleged technical problems, dropping the daily gas deliveries to 33 million cubic meters.
