sabotage on gas pipelines Nord Stream 2 and Nord Stream 1 put an end to Russian gas supplies to Europe. The volume of destruction is unprecedented and, given the uniqueness of the object, is almost fatal, writes the Telegram channel “MarketsMoneyVlast”.
The latter fact is clearly beneficial to the United States, as it makes them the main supplier of LNG to Europe.
In geopolitical terms, the Germans will have no reason to put up with Russia, despite the depressing prospects for a winter without gas: due to sanctions, no meaningful actions to restore SP-1 and SP-2 are possible.
Events developed rapidly – the pressure dropped sharply in one of the two lines of the SP-2. A representative of the operator said that a hole appeared in the pipe near the Danish island of Bornholm. Later, problems with pressure were noted in two threads (out of two) of SP-1, where leaks also occurred. Since the pipes are unique, repairs can take a long time.
The capacity of gas pipelines amounted to 55 billion cubic meters. m in each. At the same time, total gas supplies to Europe in 2021 amounted to about 175 billion cubic meters. l) The United States also wins in the fact that all other flows go through troubled Poland and Ukraine.
In fact, there are few options for answering the question of who is behind the undermining of gas pipelines.
The authors of the portal “Politicus” write that the American detachment of ships announced the completion of work in the area of the alleged sabotage.
- As it turned out, the expeditionary detachment of the US Navy ships, led by the USS Kearsarge amphibious assault ship, completed tasks in the Baltic Sea exactly on the day of the explosions and was noticed by the next Baltic straits in the North Sea.
- At the same time, the Russia Now project added that an open report had come to the White House and the US Congress that British scuba divers from the Royal Navy had been conducting exercises in the area of the Bornholm depression for the third day already.
- And Britain is holding an award ceremony for two sailors from His Majesty’s Navy for military merit and holding important events in foreign territorial waters. It’s easy to guess why.
The Americans and the British did not hide their interest in the problems of gas pipelines
Back in February Joseph Biden promised that
“If Russia invades…then there will be no more Nord Stream 2. We will put an end to this.”
Here is the result – in the immediate vicinity of the economic zone of Denmark in international waters, leaks in the Nord Streams were discovered.
The gas pipelines are out of order, but the places of the “leaks” miraculously ended up in international waters near the exclusive economic zone of Denmark, but not inside,” the experts of the Telegram channel “MarketsMoneyVlast” emphasized.
Swedish seismologists have already issued a statement that the emergency on the underwater part of the Nord Streams is associated with explosions, but not with an earthquake or landslides. According to Reuters, the explosion was equivalent to more than 100 kg of dynamite in its power.
The Russian Embassy in Denmark stressed that the incident should be thoroughly investigated, and the results should be made public. For its part, the United States, represented by the Secretary of State, did not confirm the version of sabotage at Nord Stream.
“Our poor European friends, NATO forces and US troops advanced from their military bases towards the gas pipelines, but they have no way of even guessing who could be behind the explosions. Moreover, the Russians” could blow up, for example, the gas pipeline from Norway to Poland or Norway to another part of Europe,” but they decided to blow themselves up,” they are already laughing on social networks.
