As investigations into last year’s Nord Stream pipeline bombings continue, the two gas pipelines linking Russia and Germany remain at the center of geopolitical tensions.

After previous German judicial and Western intelligence hints that Ukrainian groups might be involved, they discussed the possibility of carrying out the attack on Nord Stream before the explosion, a new British report revealed that may not be in favor of Russia.

Russian ships in place?!

According to new investigations, a convoy of 6 ships of the Russian Navy was around the site of the Nord Stream pipeline sabotage 5 days before it occurred.

It added that 3 of the four channels carrying natural gas from Russia to Germany along the bottom of the Baltic Sea were disrupted due to explosions near the Danish island of Bornholm on September 26 last year, according to the British newspaper The Times.

The new report pointed out that there are contradictions about what was previously announced, explaining that independent intelligence researchers highlighted unusual maneuvers by a Danish patrol ship and a Swedish warship in the same place and at the same time.

They indicated that they may have detected suspicious activity in the area on September 22 or 23, when the ships were tracking a Russian naval contingent that defected from a major training 3 days before that date.

These developments come at a time when Russia is still arguing about its involvement in the bombings that caused international tension last year.

Moscow has renewed its criticism of Denmark, which previously refused Russian participation in the investigations, while repeatedly declaring that it had no interest in attacking its infrastructure.

Perhaps this talk may contradict what was revealed by a Western official a while ago, when he said that the governments investigating the bombing had found evidence that pro-Ukrainian individuals or entities discussed the possibility of carrying out the attack on Nord Stream before the explosion.

He explained that those communications were not discovered until after the attack, as Western spy agencies began trawling through intelligence data for possible evidence.

It is noteworthy that Sweden and Denmark, in which the explosions took place in their exclusive economic zones, had previously concluded, following their investigations, that the pipelines had been deliberately blown up, but they did not determine who was responsible, after four large leaks were detected last September, in the Nord Stream 1 and 2 lines off Bornholm Island. Danish, two in Swedish economic waters, and two more in Danish waters.

Since the start of the conflict in Ukraine, the two lines linking Russia with Germany have been at the center of geopolitical tensions after Moscow’s decision to cut off gas supplies to Europe in response to Western sanctions imposed on it, due to the military operation it launched on the territory of the western neighbor on February 24.
