According to Germany's economic ministry, this is just a fraction of the 95 billion meters the country consumes each year.

Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, Germany has already slashed gas imports from Russia by 20%.

The announcement by Gazprom comes one day after the company said it would halt gas exports to Danish energy company ร˜rsted and Dutch gas trading firm GasTerra.

Weeks earlier, Russia cut off Poland, Bulgaria and Finland.

In March, Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened to cut off gas supplies to countries that refused to pay in rubles.
