Russia counterattacks later allegations of sabotage to the Nord Stream pipeline. “It is stupid and absurd” to blame Moscow for the gas leaks, the Kremlin says. “American President Joe Biden must clarify whether the US is behind the incidents that took place at Nord Stream “, said the spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, quoted by Tass. Meanwhile slows down the run of the gas price which is brought to the minimum of the day. Ttf futures in Amesterdam travel at 194 euros per megawatt hour, bringing the increase to 4.5 percent after a start at 205 euros.
The EU calls for a thorough investigation. “The #Nordstream sabotage acts appear to be an attempt to further destabilize the EU’s energy supply. We need an urgent and thorough investigation. Those who perpetrated this act will be held fully accountable and obligated to pay. Our efforts. to diversify the energy supply with respect to Russian gas continue “. The president of the European Council, Charles Michel, writes on Twitter.
The EU believes that this week’s losses from two submarine gas pipelines between Russia and Germany “are no coincidence”, but that they are “a deliberate act”, said the EU’s High Commissioner for Foreign Policy. Josep Borrell. Expressing “deep concern” over the Nord Stream 1 and 2 leaks and calling for an investigation, Borrell said in a statement that “all available information indicates that these leaks are the result of deliberate action.”
Yesterday the two lines of the Nord Stream, 1 and 2, suffered “unprecedented” damage in the stretch of the Baltic Sea between Denmark and Swabiato. “There is a lot of gas coming out, the explosion is very big, and so it will take some time, a week or two before leaks can be investigated by going deeper“This was stated by Danish Defense Minister Morten Bodskov, speaking on Danish television TV 2, after his meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.” It is not an accident, it has been planned, and we are talking about very large explosions “. , he said adding that “Russia has a significant military presence in the Baltic Sea region and we expect it to continue to launch sabers”.
Russia is ready to consider requests for a joint investigation on the causes of the Nord Stream accident if they come from European countries. This was stated by Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko, as reported by Ria Novosti. “If there are any appeals, we will consider them. As far as I know, there haven’t been any,” Grushko said in response to a question about Russia’s possible cooperation with European countries in investigating the Nord Stream pipeline accidents.
