Russia sanctions: Can the world cope without its oil and gas?

Ukraine has accused Russia of waging a "gas war" against Europe, after energy firm Gazprom announced it is once again reducing gas flows into Germany.

Since the invasion of Ukraine, Western leaders have imposed sanctions on Russian oil and gas, with warnings of retaliation from Moscow.

The Nord Stream 1 pipeline, which pumps gas from Russia to Germany, has been running well below capacity for weeks.

Earlier this month, Russia's biggest European pipeline was completely shut down for a 10-day maintenance break, sparking fears in Europe that shipments would not resume at all.

Shipments did restart five days ago - albeit still at a reduced capacity. But on Monday, Gazprom announced it would be cutting its gas supply further once again.
