MOSCOW, October 1 – Novosti. Moscow called “the fight of foxes for the rights of chickens” London’s proposed assistance to Denmark in investigating the accident at Nord Stream.
“The fight of foxes for the rights of chickens,” wrote Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on her Telegram channel, commenting on information about London’s assistance in investigating the terrorist attacks on Nord Stream.
Downing Street reported on Saturday that Britain had offered Denmark assistance in investigating the Nord Stream attacks. British Prime Minister Liz Truss met with Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen on Saturday at the Government House, according to the release. They discussed the state of emergency at Nord Stream, as well as cooperation between Britain and Denmark in the energy sector.
Last Monday, terrorist attacks took place simultaneously on two Russian gas export pipelines to Europe . Germany , Denmark and Sweden do not rule out targeted sabotage. The Russian side officially requested information from Denmark about the emergency at Nord Stream as soon as the incident became known. The Danish authorities notified the Russian Federation about the explosions at the site of the gas leak. The Nord Stream operator Nord Stream AG reported that the state of emergency on gas pipelines is unprecedented and it is impossible to estimate the repair time.
The work of Nord Stream has been suspended since the end of August due to problems with the repair of Siemens turbines caused by Western sanctions. However, the pipeline remained filled with gas. Nord Stream 2 , completed in 2021 but never put into operation, was also already filled with gas.
The Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation initiated the initiation of a case on an act of international terrorism after the damage to the Nord Stream gas pipelines.
