    Vladimir Putin, the Russian prime minister, has defended his country's Nord Stream gas pipeline, amid accusations it could damage the Baltic Sea.

    Finland is expected to give approval for the project imminently, allowing construction to start later this year for completion by 2012.

    Stephen Cole asked Sebastien Saas, Nord Stream's EU representive, what impact the project could have on the Baltic Sea.
