Majority of Danish politicians want to reject Russian gas pipeline

Politicians believe that geopolitical and security considerations should be factored in to Denmark's decision to reject or approve Gazprom's application for a gas pipeline, slated to run through Danish territorial waters.

The support includes center-left opposition parties Socialdemokratiet and Radikale.

"Unfortunately, we are in a situation where Russian is taking the wrong route and in many ways working against our interests in Ukraine, Syria, and within their own region," says foreign affairs spokesperson for Radikale, Martin Lidegaard.
