Livestream shows Russian gas stove that is on all day: ‘Costs me 1.5 euros per month’

The RussianGas1 live stream attracted a total of tens of thousands of viewers from all over the world in recent days on Twitch. The maker stated the goal: ‘wasting gas 24/7’. On Tuesday evening, about three thousand viewers simultaneously watched the images of the burning gas burners, where Russian songs could be heard.

The profile had gained nearly ten thousand followers in a few days. Twitch, which is part of Amazon, intervened this morning. “This channel is unavailable due to a violation of the Community Guidelines or Terms of Service,” it reads. It is not clear what the exact violation was.

Gas bill of 1.44 euros

The user behind the account claimed to be a Russian who would pay only 1.44 euros per month for his gas bill. The livestream was intended to “troll” people in Europe and the US as they face increasingly higher gas prices since the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

After the channel went offline, a new livestream of a “Russian gas stove” immediately surfaced on Twitch.

Pro-Russian messages

In addition to the gas stove, the first live stream also showed a thermometer and a clock to make it clear to viewers that it was live images and not recordings. In the chat at the stream, many pro-Russian messages could be read.

The streamer also raised almost three thousand euros in donations ‘to buy a gas oven’.

Gas price has risen sharply again today

The European gas price shot up again today on fear of a new escalation of the war in Ukraine. Traders reacted to Vladimir Putin’s speech, in which the president announced a partial military mobilization. As a result, hundreds of thousands of reservists can be called up, who can be deployed in Ukraine.
