Media: pressure in Nord Stream could fall due to sabotage – pipes could undermine at the bottom

Peskov voiced the Kremlin's comment about the state of emergency at SP-2.

The media suggested that the cause of the pressure drop in both gas pipelines of the “Nord Stream” could have been sabotage.

According to the German edition Tagesspiegel, citing an insider in the German representative office of the project, an investigation is already underway, to which the country's federal security agencies have joined.

The authors report that “ everything testifies against” the fact that two state of emergency in a row & # 8211; it's just a coincidence. The source said that a scenario where what happened could not be “a targeted attack” cannot be imagined.

Recall that about the incident at “SP-2” became known from media reports. The incident happened on Danish territory, not far from Bornholm, on September 26.

The pressure in the gas pipeline dropped sharply, and after a while the same thing happened at “SP-1”. Since September 2, as “Gazprom” reported, due to a breakdown of the compressor station “Portovaya” gas is not pumping here, reports “Kommersant”.

The Danish Maritime Authority declared a dangerous zone for navigation and introduced a restrictive perimeter of 5 miles.

Local authorities, according to the source, believe that there was a sabotage carried out by special forces – divers or from a submarine. There are two versions of the attack.

The first – Ukrainian or Kyiv-related forces should be held responsible, the second – the sabotage was committed by the Russian Federation, but under the guise of “alien flag”.

According to RIA Novosti, Nord Stream AG estimated the state of emergency at “Nord Stream” and “Nord Stream-2” as an unprecedented situation.

According to the text of the appeal, the destruction that occurred on three gas pipelines at once is such that it is not clear when the infrastructure will be restored.

Speaking of leaks, Western media mention one in Denmark and two – on Swedish territory, while all of them are “close to each other”.

The Kremlin also reacted to the emergency. According to the official representative of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov, the detected violations require immediate investigation, and are of concern to the presidential administration.

Peskov admitted that the pressure has dropped “significantly”.

“We are extremely concerned about this news”, – quotes him by the media.

The Kremlin speaker also stated that the nature of “some damage in the pipe” is still unknown.

Earlier, Topnews wrote that & #8220;Nord Stream” suspended by Russia for an indefinite period.
