Russia's pipeline leaks are disgusting sabotage, Sweden says

October 10, 2022: -On Thursday, Sweden’s national security service said a crime scene investigation into the gas leaks from two underwater pipelines connecting Russia to Germany “strengthened the suspicions of gross sabotage.”

Sweden’s Security Service expressed the investigation found detonations at the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines in the Swedish exclusive economic zone, which caused “extensive damage” to the pipelines.

It added that “certain seizures have been made” without further details and that these would now be reviewed and analyzed.

“The continued preliminary investigation must show whether someone can be served with suspicion and later prosecuted,” Sweden’s Security Service said in a statement.

In a separate statement, Sweden’s prosecutor’s office said the area was no longer cordoned off.

Seismologists on September 26 reported explosions in the vicinity of the unusual Nord Stream gas leaks, situated in international waters but inside Denmark’s and Sweden’s economic zones.

 The cause of the gas leaks is not known. Denmark’s armed forces said that video footage showed that the most significant gas leak created a surface disturbance of 1 kilometer (0.62 miles). In contrast, the minor leak caused a circle of approximately 200 meters.

The European Union suspects sabotage, as the incident comes amid a bitter energy standoff between Brussels and Moscow.

Russia denied it was behind the suspected attack, calling such accusations “stupid.”
