Kremlin doesn't rule out sabotage of Nord Stream system

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov (pictured) said Tuesday that he does not rule out "the possibility of sabotage" in connection with the Nord Stream system leaks while adding that this is "an exceptional situation that requires urgent investigation."

"Now, we cannot rule out any option. Obviously, there is some kind of damage in the pipe, and we cannot rule out any option before the study results appear," Peskov told reporters.

Earlier, Nord Stream AG announced the occurrence of leaks "simultaneously on three branches of the Nord Stream system's offshore pipelines" in the Baltic Sea.
