Fourth leak found in Russian gas pipelines
September 29, 2022 - Sweden has found a new leak in undersea pipelines carrying Russian natural gas to the EU, making it the fourth discovered so far. NATO says the incidents are the result of “acts of sabotage”.
Denmark and Sweden reported gas leaks in the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines earlier this week.
Gas has been bubbling up from the pipelines since earlier this week, with Denmark estimating that the links would empty by Sunday.
Several governments have called the actions “deliberate” and “sabotage,” with Finland on Wednesday noting that only a state actor could be capable of acts on such a scale.
Russia dismissed suggestions that it had attacked its own pipelines as “predictable and stupid”.
