Moscow calls for "objective" investigation into nord stream pipelines damage

Global News published this video item, entitled “Moscow calls for “objective” investigation into Nord Stream pipelines damage” – below is their description.

Russia said on Thursday that the U.S. stands to benefit from ruptures to the Nord Stream gas pipelines under the Baltic Sea, in comments that escalate a war of words with the West over responsibility for the still-unexplained damage.

In a press briefing, foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the U.S. would be able to boost its sales of liquefied natural gas (LNG) if the pipelines were put permanently out of use.

The European Union is investigating the cause of the leaks in the Gazprom-run Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines under the Baltic Sea and has said it suspects sabotage.

Neither was in use at the time of the incidents, but both still contained large volumes of gas.

Plus, the Kremlin also said on Thursday that incidents on two major undersea gas pipelines from Russia to Germany look like acts of state-sponsored “terrorism.”

“This looks like an act of terrorism, possibly on a state level,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a daily call.
