Nord Stream 2 pipeline stops leaking gas

Nord Stream 2 spokesman Ulrich Lissek told AFP that the pipeline has seemingly stopped leaking after the pressure of water and gas zeroed.

"The water pressure has more or less closed the pipeline so that the gas which is inside can't go out," said Lissek, noting that he has concluded there is still gas in the pipeline. Nord Stream 2 became inoperational in February when the government in Berlin suspended certification of the pipeline after Moscow launched its military operation in Ukraine.

Both Nord Stream 1 and 2, which connect Germany and Russia, suffered four gas leaks last week, widely considered to be acts of sabotage.
