That and with no balcony you would need s flue to vent the combustion gases
I was thinking more mains gas supply not bottles, when my power goes out I still have a gas supply to my oven and hob however the fridge / freezer would need to have a continuously burning pilot light not one of the new electronic ignition systems unless a battery was available.
the majority of gas fridges these days work off main electricity, LPG gas and 12V batteries as they are designed for caravans and boats depending on where it was placed in the flat a flexible flue could be routed to a window when gas is required for operation and a battery for the ignition system.
another option for long term cooling might be a solar powered cool box, small but big enough for the essentials, if the power is out for any length of time most people run through the contents of the fridge first, cook any fresh meat etc. if the power was out for weeks on end the shops wont be stocking fresh food that needs refrigeration anyway if they're even open.
A small cool box or freezer with a small solar panel that would fit in your window might be a way forward..... from a quick look about the internet I came across the one on the link below, it only requires 80W which is one small solar panel that could fit in a window.
