The Nord Stream No. 1 and No. 2 pipelines were vandalized, and the European energy crisis is heating up again

The Nord Stream No. 1 and No. 2 pipelines that transport Russian natural gas have both leaked gas, and officials in Denmark, Germany, and Poland allege that it may have been caused by sabotage. The European energy crisis is heating up again, with local natural gas prices soaring by as much as 20%.

The Financial Times, Reuters, and the Wall Street Journal reported that Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen bluntly stated that the possibility of deliberate sabotage cannot be ruled out due to the leakage of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 natural gas pipelines. The two gas pipelines are the key to triggering Europe's energy crisis. German officials also said that the sudden loss of pressure on the two gas pipelines may have been caused by a man-made attack, and Russia could not be ruled out.

European natural gas prices rose 20% in intraday trading as traders worried that Russia's natural gas supplies to Europe would be further hit.

Swedish maritime authorities reported on Tuesday (27th) that there were two leaks from the Nord Stream 1 pipeline near the Baltic Sea island of Bornholm (Bornholm). The Danish energy ministry also said earlier that the Nord Stream 2 pipeline had leaked near the island of Bornholm. The operator of the Nord Stream pipeline said the damage was "unprecedented" on three lines in one day.
