Denmark announces gas leak in Nord Stream 2 area

The Danish authorities have announced a gas leak in the Baltic Sea near the Nord Stream 2 pipeline route. The causes of the leak are still to be clarified. Denmark immediately informed the competent authorities of Germany, Sweden, Finland and Russia. Berlin suspended the authorization for the entry into operation of Nord Stream 2 following the recognition by Moscow of the independence from Ukraine of the self-proclaimed Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, in Donbas.
