‘sabotage’ behind gas leaks in russia’s nord stream pipelines, say eu, nato officials

South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “‘Sabotage’ behind gas leaks in Russia’s Nord Stream pipelines, say EU, Nato officials” – below is their description.

European and Nato officials said they believe “sabotage” may be behind as many as four leaks in two major pipelines that carry gas from Russia to Europe. Gas has been leaking into the Baltic Sea from the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 lines. Two underwater blasts were detected on September 26, 2022, in the vicinity of the leaks, according to seismologists in Denmark and Sweden. Danish Defence Minister Morten Bodskov said it could take one or two weeks before inspections of the sites could take place.
