MOSCOW, 14 Oct – PRIME. One of the branches of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is probably in working condition, but there are no plans to launch it yet, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.
“The decision is not being made, apparently, it is unlikely to be made. But this is no longer our business, this is the business of our partners,” he said.
The head of Gazprom, Alexei Miller, as part of the Russian Energy Week, said that the second string of Nord Stream 2 could have been damaged, but it definitely does not have gas leaks.
A gas leak on the strings of the Russian gas pipelines Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 was discovered on September 26 in the Baltic Sea. According to Swedish seismologists, powerful underwater explosions were recorded in the emergency area the day before. The Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation initiated the initiation of a case on an act of international terrorism.
Agence France Presse said, citing the Prime Minister of the Swedish transitional government, Magdalena Andersson, that Stockholm does not plan to allow Russia to investigate sabotage on gas pipelines. In this regard, the Russian Foreign Ministry made a demarche to the ambassadors of Germany, Denmark and Sweden, saying that it would not recognize the results of the investigation if Russian specialists did not participate in it.
