A Swedish investigation of the gas pipelines has found evidence of detonations and prosecutors suspect sabotage.
A Swedish crime scene investigation of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines from Russia to Europe has found evidence of detonations and prosecutors suspect sabotage.
Four leaks from the Russian pipes were discovered last week in Swedish and Danish exclusive economic zones.
Russia has chosen to play a game of pointing fingers in the recent Nord Stream pipeline incident.
The European Union is investigating major leaks in the Gazprom-led Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines under the Baltic Sea and has said it suspects sabotage.
The damage to Nord Stream is important and symbolic, and will also likely usher in a new global economic world order.
The EU suspects sabotage was behind the gas leaks on the subsea Russian pipelines to Europe and has promised a "robust" response to any intentional disruption of its energy infrastructure.
Gas leaks as a result of suspected sabotage discovered on the two pipelines on Tuesday have roiled energy markets and heightened security concerns.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a daily conference call with reporters that the incident needed to be investigated and the timings for the repair of the damaged pipelines were not clear.
Magdalena Andersson told a news conference the Swedish government was in close contact with partners such as NATO and neighbors such as Denmark and Germany concerning the developments.
