Sweden ends Nord Stream sabotage probe, hands evidence to Germany

Sweden has dropped its investigation into the 2022 explosions on the Nord Stream pipelines, which carry Russian gas to Germany under the Baltic Sea. The blasts ruptured the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines in the Swedish and Danish economic zones, releasing methane. Sweden cited a lack of jurisdiction and handed over evidence to German investigators. The investigation aimed to determine Swedish involvement, but no such connection was found. Germany and Denmark are conducting separate probes, and in July, Germany informed the UN Security Council of traces of subsea explosives on a sailing yacht linked to the incident. Russia blames the U.S., Britain, and Ukraine, while some Western officials point to Russian military vessels in the area without concrete evidence. Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov expressed Russia’s interest in Germany’s response to the investigation.
