Russia said that the country should be allowed to investigate the destruction of Nord Stream, after Sweden blocked the area around the pipe.

Really need a investigation, of course, with the participation of Russia, Russian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Vershinin said today.

Vershinin made a comment after Sweden considered the leaked area on the Nord Stream pipes as the scene of the case.

Two companies operating Nord Stream pipes on October 4 said they could not check the leak position due to the limited measures set by Danish and Sweden officials.
