The alleged actual sabotage act against the north stream pipelines apparently spared the north stream 2, which is preferred by Russia. "As far as Nord Stream 2 is concerned, this pipeline has actually been in a technically suitable state after preliminary assessment," said Russia's Minister of Energy Alexander Nowak on Wednesday on state television. He offered to deliver gas to Europe through this line. At the same time, he called for Russia's participation in the investigation into the sabotage.
at the end of September there was explosions under water on the Baltic Sea pipeline. Both strands of the Nord Stream 1 pipeline and a strand from Nord Stream 2 leaked. Experts assume a state -owned sabotage act. Russian President Vladimir Putin recently accused British and American of the attack on the gas pipe. These are the profiteers of the sabotage act, he claimed. Nord Stream 1 has not been pumped with gas by Russia since the beginning of September - allegedly for technical reasons that could not be remedied because of the sanctions. Instead,
offered Moscow Nord Stream 2 as an alternative variant, but the certification of which was finally stopped by Germany in February. After the liquidation of Nord Stream 1, Nowak has brought Nord Stream 2 into play again. Gas deliveries are possible if necessary, the minister emphasized.
