MOSCOW, September 27. /TASS/. The Russian embassy in Denmark on Tuesday said the Nord Stream accidents need to be investigated and the findings should be made public.
"The embassy assumes the accident will be subjected to a comprehensive investigation by the competent agencies enlisting all the means and forces that may take. The findings of that investigation should be made public," the embassy said in a statement on Facebook (banned in Russia as it’s owned by Meta Corporation, which is designated as extremist in Russia).
The statement said the disruptions at the pipeline system "create the risks for the prospect of its possible use in the interests of a sustainable energy supply for the European industrial, transportation and social infrastructure, especially in the context of the start of the heating season."
Earlier, three leaks were discovered at the Nord Stream and Nord Stream-2 pipelines within hours of each other. The first of them was detected at Nord Stream 2 near the Danish island of Bornholm. Afterward, two leaks were detected at Nord Stream. The Danish energy agency reported that a large amount of gas leaked into the sea. Planes and ships are ordered to keep at least five nautical miles away from the site of the incidents.
Swedish seismologists later said they had registered two explosions along the pipeline routes on Monday.
