The growth in wind power generation and other renewable sources in Europe did not affect the reduction in Russian gas supplies to the region, transit along the main routes – Nord Stream and the Ukrainian gas transmission system – is expected to be at the level of Friday on Saturday, data from WindEurope and transport operators showed
Gas deliveries via Nord Stream are on average at the level of almost 170 million cubic meters per day, they are stable, as on Thursday and Friday, follows from the data of the pipeline operator Nord Stream AG.
Gas transit through the gas transportation system of Ukraine also remains at the level of previous days.

By the end of the week, wind power generation in Europe increased by more than one and a half times – from 5.6% on Monday to 9.8% on Friday. However, the indicator remains below the average monthly indicator in May – 14.25%.
