Nord Stream pipelines can be repaired, Putin says

The Russian president emphasized that the explosion at pipelines "was very strong"

ULAN-UDE, March 14. /TASS/. Nord Stream gas pipelines can be repaired after the blast but this will require time, money and new technologies, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday.

"This is not a simple matter. The global practice does not even have examples of repairing the like systems after such accidents," the head of state said.

"In theory, everything is possible in terms of technology," Putin noted. "This will require time, money, and certain new technologies. Nevertheless, everything is possible, everything can be done," the Russian leader said.

The explosion at pipelines "was very strong," Putin added.
