“The pumps that caused four leaks in the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipeline, about 80 meters deep in the exclusive economic zones of Sweden and Denmark, may have been the maintenance robots operating inside the pipeline structure during the works. repair”: is the opinion of the experts reported by the Guardian.

“If this theory is correct, the sophisticated nature of the attack and the power of the blast would raise suspicions that the attacks were carried out by a state power, with the finger pointing at Russia.”

Four gas leaks were therefore discovered following the explosions of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipeline lines off the Danish island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea. This was also confirmed by the Swedish Coast Guard. Two of those four losses are in the Swedish economic zone.

Who blew up the pipeline

At the nature of explosions several hypotheses are now circulating: the hit of a submarine, a marine drone or even TNT payloads. In fact, no stationery store still has doubts that the leaks are not the result of an accident, but of sabotage, and the resumption of responsibility has already begun.

Intelligence sources cited by the Spiegel authority believe that the pipelines were hit in four places by explosions with 500 kilograms of TNT, the equivalent of the explosive power of an airplane bomb.
According to German media, underwater and remotely controlled robots can visit leak sites at these times to calculate the power of the explosions.

Putin’s Accusations

Yesterday the Russian president Vladimir Putin spoke about the Nord Stream issue during the ceremony of annexation of the occupied Ukrainian territories. And he made very specific accusations. “The Anglo-Saxons were not satisfied with the sanctions. They went on to sabotage and organize explosions against the Nord Stream pipelines that run along the bottom of the Baltic Sea. Then they started to destroy the pan-European energy infrastructure,” he said. he.

Cloud also in Italy, but without danger

Later pipe gas leak, the level of methane in Sweden and Norway is at record levels, according to the media of the two countries, who speak of a “big cloud”. According to a simulation published by the Norwegian research institute Nilu, the methane released by the leaks moved with the wind through several Swedish and Norwegian regions, reaching the UK. The tail of the methane cloud would also touch Italy. But as Bernardo Gozzini, director of the Lamma-Cnr Consortium, explains, there is no danger of pollution and not even for the health of citizens, since the cloud is very diluted in the atmosphere.
