    Sweden completes inspection of leak sites at Nord Stream

    Published on

    The Swedish Security Service has completed an investigation at the site of the Nord Stream leaks. This was reported on October 6 on the website of the department.

    As a result of the inspection, law enforcement officers “reinforced suspicions of gross sabotage.”

    The report notes that the investigation was carried out with the support of the Coast Guard, the Swedish Armed Forces and the Swedish Police. “It was a very well-functioning cooperation,” the security service noted.

    The investigation was conducted without the participation of Russia

    Conclusions Swedish investigation responded to the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova. The diplomat stressed that law enforcement officers called the explosions sabotage, recalling that earlier such situations were called sabotage, terrorist attacks and extremism. that Moscow will seek “to conduct a comprehensive open investigation with the participation of representatives of the Russian competent departments and, of course, Gazprom.” The fact that Russia insists on an international investigation of leaks in gas pipelines was also spoken by Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Vershinin. In addition, he demanded that Germany be involved in the investigation.

    Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry accused Denmark of not cooperating in the investigation of the accidents at the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines. According to Zakharova, the unwillingness of Copenhagen to cooperate may indicate that the Danish authorities know who is to blame for the leaks.

    In Russia, they named those interested in damaging the gas pipeline

    Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Alexander Novak named three countries interested in decommissioning Nord Stream. In his opinion, these are the states whose authorities have previously expressed their negative position towards the operation of gas pipelines. “Both the United States, and Ukraine, and Poland at one time said that “this infrastructure will not work, they will do everything for this,” so, of course, this needs to be seriously looked into,” he said.

    Russian Prosecutor General Igor Krasnov also noted that the West did not hide the actions to destroy Nord Stream. “The pinnacle of aggression and cynicism was their public position about recent malicious actions against the Nord Stream gas pipelines,” Krasnov said. He called such actions of the West “mass schizophrenia.” Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2, scientists conducted a study. They found that the methane content is a thousand times higher than normal. Such a concentration of gas may have an impact on marine plankton, experts warn.

    Sweden and Denmark warned about the environmental threat in a recent UN letter. The countries expressed their concern that due to the significant amount of greenhouse gas emissions, the incident could affect the climate and the Baltic Sea. As of September 29, the radius of gas emissions on the surface of the water in Sweden reached 900 and 200 meters, in Denmark – 55 and 680 meters. . Accidents were recorded in the territorial waters of Sweden and Denmark. The German security services assumed that both Nord Stream lines would no longer be usable and would be shut down forever. In Europe, the USA and Russia, they called the incident a diversion.
