Sweden Finds A Fourth Leak In Nord Stream Pipelines

  • Until now, three leaks had been reported from the Nord Stream pipelines, two from Nord Stream 1 and one from Nord Stream 2.
  • This fourth leak was from Nord Stream 2, close to one of the ruptures on the Nord Stream 1 pipeline.
  • The EU believes the gas leaks resulted from a deliberate act of sabotage and not an accident or a mere technical failure.

Four leaks, two in each of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines, were discovered after gas started leaking earlier this week from the infrastructure just outside Swedish and Danish territorial waters in the Baltic Sea, Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet reports, quoting Sweden’s Coast Guard.

Until now, three leaks from the two pipelines had been reported—two on Nord Stream 1 pipes, and one on Nord Stream 2. According to the Swedish Coast Guard, the fourth leak is on Nord Stream 2, close to a rupture found on the twin Nord Stream 1 pipeline.   

Two of the four leaks are close to each other in the Swedish exclusive economic zone near Simrishamn, the Coast Guard says as quoted by Svenska Dagbladet.

Nord Stream 2 was never put into operation after Germany axed the certification process following the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Russia, for its part, shut down Nord Stream 1 indefinitely early this month, claiming an inability to repair gas turbines because of the Western sanctions.

Until yesterday, Russian analysts claimed that one of the four lines of the Russian Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines could still be able to ship gas to Europe if Nord Stream 2 received all necessary certifications.

Now it looks like all four lines of Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 were damaged in mysterious circumstances. The EU as a whole believes the gas leaks from the pipelines in the Baltic Sea were the result of a deliberate act of sabotage and not an accident or a mere technical failure.  

The European Union said in a statement on Wednesday, “All available information indicates those leaks are the result of a deliberate act.”

Denmark’s Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod said earlier this week, commenting on the gas leaks and explosions in the Baltic Sea, “We’re coordinating the situation closely with US and other allies, including on next steps. We will get to the bottom of these incidents and act on them together.”

    Thank you USA, as former Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorsky said. You did it.
    One thing for sure we have to add. From now on, the U.S is the terrorist state. This is unprecedented, but it's all in the open. Joe Biden said, and Victoria Nuland as well, that Nord Stream 2 will never be in operation. We should have believe them then. Now we've got a proof.
    One question must be asked. What is the difference between the other terrorist states that U.S. labels them as such, and the USA? The obvious answer is NONE, ZERO. The U.S. used to do the regime changes before thru covered ops, but now they moved to the next step. Industrial terrorism against the major infrastructure, against anybody who dares to challenge them. What's next? Using nukes?
    Where will they stop? Or, may be another question, who will stop them? This regime in the WH is out of control.
