"It happened in the trade and economic zones of Denmark and Sweden," an area under the full control of U.S. intelligence services, according to Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.

Last Monday, ruptures in the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines were detected for the first time; sabotage is not ruled out. Four leaks have been detected in the waters surrounding Denmark and Sweden.


Fourth Leak Found on Nord Stream Pipelines

This Thursday, speaking to the Soloviev Live program, the Russian diplomat said that the Nord Stream pipeline incidents occurred in "the exclusive economic zone of Denmark and Sweden," countries "which are crammed with U.S.-made weapons."

According to the spokeswoman, these are "very NATO-centric countries, totally controlled by U.S. intelligence agencies, which have full control of the situation there."

Zakharova said that U.S. President Joe Biden must answer if these incidents are the materialization of threats made last February. He said he would end Nord Stream 2 if Russian troops " crossed the Ukrainian border again."

Since last Monday, when authorities in Denmark and Sweden reported two gas leaks in Nord Stream 1 and one in Nord Stream 2 near the island of Bornholm, gas has been leaking into the Baltic Sea.

Sabotage is not ruled out, and the European Union (EU) said it would respond firmly to any deliberate disruption to Russian pipelines crossing the Baltic Sea between Russia and Germany to reach Europe.
