The leakage of gas from the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline into the Baltic Sea has been stopped, reported AFP and Reuters, quoted by BTA.

Danish officials said they had been informed of this by the pipeline operator.

According to the statement, the pressure in the pipeline has stabilized, meaning that no more gas is leaking.

"The pressure of the water has more or less closed the pipeline so that the gas in it cannot escape," according to Ulrich Lisek, a spokesman for Nord Stream-2.

"The bottom line is that there is still gas in the pipeline," he added.

Earlier, German Interior Minister Nancy Feser said Germany, Denmark and Sweden would jointly investigate the gas leak.

She specified that she had spoken with her colleagues from Denmark and Sweden and that the investigation would be led by a joint team in accordance with EU rules.

"All signs point to sabotage against the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines," she added.

Feser specified that the security forces are monitoring the German energy infrastructure with increased vigilance, but so far there is no specific information about threats against German facilities.
