Denmark invited Nord Stream to take part in the lifting of an object near Nord Stream

The Danish Energy Agency has invited Nord Stream 2 AG to take part in the recovery operation of an object discovered near the Nord Stream gas pipeline.

Former President of Russia Vladimir Putin stated that Russia suggested that Denmark check Nord Stream for other explosives, but the answer was vague. Specialists of Gazprom, according to him, while examining the gas pipeline, found a certain “column” at a distance of about 30 kilometers from the explosion site. It was installed in a vulnerable place – at the junction of pipes. Experts believe that this could be an antenna for receiving a signal to activate an explosive device that could be placed under the pipeline system. Putin noted that several explosive devices could have been planted there, but some exploded, and some did not.

“In order to further clarify the nature of the object, the Danish authorities decided to raise it to the surface with the assistance of the Danish Ministry of Defense. In this regard, the Danish Energy Agency has invited the pipeline operator, Nord Stream 2 AG, to take part in the operation,” the Danish agency said in a communiqué.

The agency is awaiting a response from Nord Stream 2 AG before proceeding with the operation.

In September last year, two Russian export gas pipelines to Europe, Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2, exploded at once. Germany, Denmark and Sweden did not rule out targeted sabotage. The Prosecutor General’s Office of Russia initiated a case on an act of international terrorism.

American journalist, Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh On February 8, he published his investigation into the sabotage at Nord Stream, in which, citing a source, he stated that explosive devices under Russian gas pipelines were planted in June 2022 under the cover of the Baltops exercises by US Navy divers with the support of Norwegian specialists. According to Hersh, the operation was authorized by the President of the United States. Joe Biden.

In early March, The New York Times reported intelligence that a pro-Ukrainian group was behind the attack on Nord Stream, but its plans were not necessarily known to the Kyiv leadership. Then similar materials were published by several other major Western media.

Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov called publications about the Ukrainian trace a coordinated stuffing in the press, aimed at diverting attention. Vladimir Putin himself described this version as complete nonsense, noting that such sabotage could only be carried out by specialists with the technological support of any state.
