In early July, the Danish energy Agency upon request 2 Nord Stream AG is allowed to use sudo with anchor positioning on the remaining section of the pipeline. The Agency acknowledged that in that place there of graves of ships with chemical warfare substances so that the bottom of the work does not bear any danger. However, to continue the construction can only be August 3, when the deadline for appealing the decision.
