"The laying of pipes for the second string of Nord Stream 2 in the exclusive economic zone of Denmark has been completed," the statement says.
It is reported that today, August 22, the Russian pipe-laying vessel Fortuna crossed the border of the Danish zone near the northeastern edge of the Pomeranian Bay.
The Danish section of the pipeline with a length of 147 km turned out to be the most problematic for the Russian Federation - the Danish authorities blocked the passage of the gas pipeline and greatly delayed the coordination of the route through the exclusive economic zone. In addition, contractors such as Allseas were hampered by sanctions.
On the eve, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the Russian Federation is ready to continue transporting gas through Ukraine after 2024. However, the Russian authorities need to understand for how long the transit will be extended and in what volumes.
