On Wednesday, the Danish Energy Agency announced the completion of work on the lifting of an unknown object adjacent to the Russian Nord Stream 2 pipeline, which was destroyed last fall.
This is stated in the message of the agency.
Work on lifting an unknown object near Nord Stream-2 was carried out with the participation of the Danish Armed Forces at a depth of 73 meters. During the process, a representative of the owner of Nord Stream 2 AG was present.
"Investigations show that the object is an empty marine smoke buoy used for visual marking. The object does not pose a safety threat," - emphasizes the Danish Energy Agency.
Last week, the Danish Energy Agency invited the pipeline's owner, Nord Stream 2 AG, to help raise an unidentified object found near the only intact gas pipeline on the bottom of the Baltic Sea.
Russia has long insisted that it be included in the investigation of gas pipeline explosions. Earlier in Denmark it was stated that such permission would not be given.
We will remind, in March materials appeared in the Western mass media suggesting that non-governmental groups, which could include Russians and Ukrainians, could be behind the explosion of the Nord Stream gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea.
The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyi, said that Ukraine was not involved in the explosions that occurred in September on the branches of Russian gas pipelines "North Stream", and offered to analyze which players might need such an information leak.
