According to the release, British Prime Minister Liz Truss met with Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen in Saturday at the Government House in Downing Street. They discussed the emergency at Nord Stream, as well as cooperation between Britain and Denmark in the energy sector.The emergency at Nord Stream will cause turmoil in the energy markets, according to the UN “They agreed that the incidents were a clear act of sabotage. The Prime Minister (Truss – ed.) offered to help the UK in the ongoing investigation,” the document says. In addition, the prime ministers agreed that the security and protection of the Baltic Sea is in the common interest, and “welcomed the expansion of cooperation within the framework of the Joint Expeditionary Force,” the release notes. They also stressed the need for “like-minded democratic countries” to work together to increase their energy independence. Last Monday, terrorist attacks took place simultaneously on two Russian gas export pipelines to Europe. Germany, Denmark and Sweden do not rule out targeted sabotage. The Russian side officially requested information from Denmark about the emergency at Nord Stream as soon as the incident became known. The Danish authorities notified the Russian Federation about the explosions at the site of the gas leak. The operator of Nord Stream, Nord Stream AG, reported that the emergency on gas pipelines was unprecedented and it was impossible to estimate the timing of repairs. The work of Nord Stream was suspended from the end of August due to problems with the repair of Siemens turbines caused by Western sanctions. However, the pipeline remained filled with gas. Nord Stream 2, completed in 2021 but never put into operation, was also already filled with gas. -content/uploads/2022/10/45719911c53899901bc2f2753421191c.jpg” />Nebenzya: West considers emergency at Nord Stream as Russia's revenge for Ukraine
