Incidents at the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines took place in the zone of responsibility of US intelligence, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said, RIA Novosti reported.
According to her, the leaks on the pipelines happened in the trade and economic zone of Denmark and Sweden, which, in turn, are "fully controlled by the U.S. intelligence services." "Absolutely and definitely are under the control of U.S. intelligence services, which have full control of the situation there," Zakharova said.
The Swedish Coast Guard discovered a fourth gas leak from the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 pipelines. Two of the four leaks occurred in the exclusive economic zone of Sweden. The information available today indicates that sabotage was the cause of the destruction, Svenska Dagbladet reported.
