Quote from Podolyak: "The large-scale ‘gas leak’ from Nord Stream-1 –  is nothing more than a terrorist attack planned by Russia and an act of aggression towards the EU. Russia wants to destabilise the economic situation in Europe and cause panic before winter."

Details: Podolyak added that the best response to Russia and investment in security is to provide tanks for Ukraine, in particular German ones.

Background: 

  • On the night of 26 September, the gas leak was recorded from both lines of Nord Stream-1 in the Exclusive Economic Zone of Denmark northeast of Bornholm Island. There was also a leak on one of the lines of the Nord Stream-2 pipeline.
