The Russian prosecutor's office said Wednesday that the Federal Security Service (FSB) opened an investigation into "international terrorism" after "intentional actions were taken to damage gas pipelines near the Bornholm island, causing significant economic damage to the Russian Federation," the prosecutor's office said in a statement.

The Swedish coast guard said Tuesday that there are four leaks in the damaged Nord Stream pipelines, with two in the Swedish and two in the Danish exclusive economic zones.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen believed the leaks were an act of sabotage
