MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The Danish Energy Agency said on Thursday it had recommended that the country's authorities cancel "no-go zones" at the sites of the Nord Stream explosions, since there was no risk to ships passing by anymore.
"Today, the Danish Energy Agency recommended that the Danish Maritime Authority lift the existing restricted areas around the leakage sites on the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines in the Baltic Sea, as the agency assesses that these areas pose no threat for ships anymore," the authority tweeted.
The Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines, built to deliver gas under the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany, were hit by explosions in September 2022. Nord Stream's operator, Nord Stream AG, said that the damage was unprecedented and it was impossible to estimate the time repairs might take.

What is the Nord Stream 2 Gas Pipeline?
Russia considers the explosions of the two pipelines an act of international terrorism. There are no official results of the investigation yet, but Pulitzer Prize-winning US investigative journalist Seymour Hersh published a report in February 2023, alleging that the explosions had been organized by the United States with the support of Norway. Washington has denied any involvement in the incident.
In early March, German magazine Der Spiegel disclosed details regarding the yacht allegedly linked to the sabotage on the Nord Stream pipelines. A Bavaria Cruiser 50 sailing yacht named Andromeda was rented by unknown people, with the e-mail used to rent it hinting at connections to Ukraine, the report said.
