Russian Foreign Ministry: The Nord Stream leaks took place in a zone controlled by the US


“The leaks occurred in the commercial and financial zones of Denmark and Sweden. They are NATO-centric countries, countries that are fully controlled by the US intelligence services,” Zakharova said.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry said today that the cracks in its pipelines Nord Stream which run across the bottom of the Baltic Sea between Russia and Germany and that caused gas leaks off the coast of Denmark and Sweden occurred in an area that is “fully under the control” of US intelligence.

The representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Maria Zakharova, stated to the audience at Kremlin media that Washington has “full control over the waters around Denmark and Sweden” where four leaks were detected in the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 pipelines.

They happened in the trade and economic zones of Denmark and Sweden. They are NATO-centric countries, countries that are completely controlled by US intelligenceZakharova said in an interview she gave today on the online show Soloviev Live.

THE Denmark is a member of the NATO military alliance, while its membership Sweden is imminent after abandoning the historic policy of neutrality it followed, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Zakharova did not provide any information on the control exercised by the US in Sweden and Denmark. Russia often complains about US influence and US military support in Europe.

The European Union suspects the leaks are due to sabotage of these undersea pipelines that carry gas from Russia to Europe and has warned it will respond “strongly” to any deliberate disruption of Europe’s energy infrastructure.

Although none of the pipelines were in use at the time of the alleged explosions, they were filled with gas gushing from the Baltic Sea after the cracks were first spotted on Monday, September 27.
