Russia has opened a case of "international terrorism" in connection with the recent leakage of gas from the "Nord Stream", according to the Russian media, UNN reports.
Officials are investigating the incident as an act of international terrorism," Russian media reported.
Three leaks have been confirmed in the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines under the Baltic Sea.
Earlier in the day, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the leak was a "big problem for Russia" and a loss of a valuable asset.
He also called accusations of Russian involvement "predictable, absurd and stupid."
The Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, which originates in Russia and runs under the Baltic Sea to Germany, was built to double the volume of gas.
However, as soon as the construction was completed, Germany decided to stop operations after the outbreak of war.
Russia stopped gas supply from the Nord Stream 1 pipeline on August 31.
