Between September 26 and 29, the Nord Stream No. 1 and No. 2 pipelines along the seabed of the Baltic Sea exploded, causing four leaks, which the United States, Europe, Russia and China all believed to be deliberate sabotage.

[Financial Channel/Comprehensive Report] Four leaks have been found in the Beixi No. 1 and No. 2 of Russia's natural gas transmission to Europe.

The European Union and the United States both considered it to be sabotage, and the outside world even pointed the finger at Russia, while Putin falsely accused the United States of doing it.

China has also made a statement. China’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Geng Shuang, agreed that the leak of the Beixi natural gas pipeline was not an accident, but may have been a deliberate sabotage, saying that “this is really a distressing disaster” and an investigation is necessary.

The United States and Russia blamed each other at a meeting of the United Nations Security Council on Friday over the explosion of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines under the Baltic Sea.

The US, EU, NATO and Russia all agree that the damage and gas leaks suggest sabotage, but disagree on who the likely perpetrators are.

Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia suggested that sabotaging the pipeline would benefit the U.S. the most and asked directly whether the U.S. permanent representative to the United Nations could confirm that Washington was not involved.

Richard Mills, the deputy U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, accused Russia of using the Security Council as a platform for conspiracy theories and disinformation.

He noted that since Russia invaded Ukraine seven months ago, it has repeatedly damaged and destroyed civilian infrastructure there.

China has also made a statement. Geng Shuang, China's deputy permanent representative to the United Nations, said that the Beixi natural gas pipeline is the main artery of energy transportation in Europe, supplying important natural gas to 23 European countries.

The spill caused the physical interruption of the pipeline, exacerbating the problem of energy supply shortages in Europe.

Consumers around the world, including in developing countries, are likely to suffer the resulting turmoil in energy markets and rising energy prices.

Geng Shuang said that the leakage is still continuing, and the impact of this incident on shipping routes and the ecological environment in the relevant waters has not stopped.

At a time when Europe and the world are facing an endless stream of thorny challenges, "this is really a huge, heart-wrenching catastrophe that we don't want to see."

Geng Shuang emphasized that according to the current information, the leak is "not an accident", and it is likely to be caused by "deliberate sabotage".

If true, this would constitute an attack on multinational civilian facilities and undersea pipelines, in violation of international law.

An investigation into the spill is necessary.
