Peskov spoke about three damaged branches during an emergency at Sevpotok

MOSCOW, 30 Sep — PRIME. At least three branches of the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 export gas pipelines were damaged, there was information about a leak on the fourth, but there is no accuracy yet, said Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

Peskov called for a serious international investigation of the incident at Sevpotok

“Today we know that at least three branches were affected. There was information, it appeared, in my opinion, yesterday that the fourth leak was established. But, of course, full information is possible only after research has been carried out,” Peskov said, answering reporters.

According to him, in the current conditions, these studies are impossible.

“Under the current conditions, when gas emissions continue, I don’t think these studies are possible,” Peskov added.

On Monday, terrorist attacks occurred simultaneously on two Russian gas export pipelines to Europe. Germany, Denmark and Sweden do not rule out targeted sabotage.

The Russian side officially requested information from Denmark about the emergency at Nord Stream as soon as the incident became known. The Danish authorities notified Russia of the explosions at the site of the gas leak. The operator of Nord Stream, Nord Stream AG, reported that the emergency on gas pipelines was unprecedented, and it was impossible to estimate the timing of repairs.

The work of Nord Stream has been suspended since the end of August due to problems with the repair of Siemens turbines caused by Western sanctions. However, the pipeline remained filled with gas. Nord Stream 2, completed in 2021 but never put into operation, has also already been filled with gas.

The Prosecutor General’s Office of Russia initiated the initiation of a case on an act of international terrorism after the damage to the Nord Stream gas pipelines.

Earlier, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, said that NATO conducted exercises using deep-sea equipment in the area where the Nord Stream incidents occurred. The press secretary of the Russian President stated that CNN’s statements about Russian ships and submarines allegedly seen in the area of ​​the accident on the Nord Stream strings in the Baltic Sea are stupid and biased, more NATO ships and aircraft were noticed there.
