The chief diplomat of the EU, Josep Borrell, expressed his concern about the incidents on the branches of the Russian gas pipelines Nord Stream and noted that this could not be an accident.
He published such a statement on September 28.
Borel, on behalf of the bloc, expressed deep concern about the damage caused to both Nord Streams and the possible consequences for shipping safety and the environment.
"These incidents are not a coincidence, and they affect all of us. steps to increase our resilience in the field of energy security. Any intentional damage to the European energy infrastructure is absolutely unacceptable and will receive a tough and united response," said the EU's top diplomat.
The day before, on September 27, the President of the European Council, Charles Michel, called the incidents on "Nordic Streams" acts of sabotage, which look like an attempt to increasingly destabilize the supply of energy resources to the EU.
"It is necessary to conduct an urgent and thorough investigation. Those responsible will be brought to justice and will have to pay. We will continue our efforts to diversify our supply to abandon Russian gas," he responded.
As reported, on the night of September 26, the controller of the Nord Stream-2 shore site recorded a sharp drop in pressure in the pipeline.
In addition, a gas leak was recorded from both threads of the first "Nord Stream" - in the exclusive economic zone of Denmark to the northeast of the island of Bornholm.
In Germany, they suspect that the gas leak on the branches of the Russian Nord Stream gas pipelines across the Baltic Sea is the result of deliberate actions. Denmark and Sweden also suggest that it may be a sabotage.
