German Investigators Conclude There is NO EVIDENCE that Russia Is Behind Explosions of Nord Stream Pipelines to Europe

Three deep-water explosions destroyed the Nord Stream pipelines under the Baltic Sea in September 2022.

Swedish seismologists reported that one of the three explosions measures 2.3 on the Richter Scale of earthquake intensity, but this was no earthquake. It was explosion—like a gigantic undersea mine.

The explosions guaranteed that Germany and the EU would not go wobbly with regard to sanctions against Russian energy imports. The damage to the pipelines will take months to repair, and repairs are unlikely to begin until this summer. Even if Germany were to cry “uncle” as civil unrest intensifies over lack of heat and energy, even if Russia decided to turn the power back on, the conduit for Russian gas to Europe was broken.

No country has taken responsibility for the blasts that took out the Nord Stream pipelines to Europe.

Only one country benefits. We wrote about this extensively at The Gateway Pundit last week.

Europe now faces a harsh winter with uncertain supplies of oil and gas.

In a bold statement following the explosions, Secretary of State Tony Blinken cheered the news of the explosions as “a tremendous opportunity” for Europe “to remove dependence on Russian energy.”

Sweden released the first photos from the damaged Russian Nord Stream 1 pipeline to Germany after the blast.

The footage was published by the Swedish newspaper Expressen.

It is clear the explosion was not caused by Russia or the Western media would have reported that by now. Sweden did not share its investigation which seems odd unless they are protecting someone.

Germany this week released its study of the disaster. Investigators concluded there was NO EVIDENCE that Russia was behind the explosions on the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines.

Die Welt reported:

German investigators currently have no evidence that Russia is behind the explosions on the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines. “This cannot be proven at the moment, the investigations are ongoing,” said Attorney General Peter Frank of the “Welt am Sonntag”. With the help of two research ships, water and soil samples as well as the remains of the pipelines were taken, and the crime scene was also comprehensively documented. “We are currently evaluating all of this forensically.”

At the end of September, a total of four leaks in the two pipelines were discovered after explosions near the Danish Baltic Sea island of Bornholm. The Swedish security authorities determined in November that it was serious sabotage – but without naming a culprit.
