At a meeting of NATO representatives on Wednesday, officials of Denmark reported that the cause of gas leaks from the Nord Stream-1 and Northern Stream-2 pipelines became explosions of TNT, with a capacity of 500 kg each, writes The Wall Street Journal with reference to people familiar with the course of discussion.
At the same time, such details are not given in the statement of the Alliance Council.
In total, four leaks were found: two on two threads of the Nord Stream – 1 and two on the Nord Stream – 2. Two are located in the exclusive economic zone of Sweden, two in the Danish zone. However, the scene of the accident is located outside the territorial waters of a country, the NATO Council is noted.
Earlier, the alliance officially warned the alliance that he would defend the critical infrastructure of the countries included from attacks.
