According to Magdalena Andersson, the Swedish Prime Minister, Sweden will not share the findings of the investigation into explosions in the Nord Stream gas pipelines with Gazprom or Russian authorities.
The Nord Stream 1 & 2 gas pipelines connecting Russia and Europe were the subject of a crime scene investigation in Sweden. There was evidence of explosions and prosecutors suspect sabotage.
Last week, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin wrote to the Swedish government requesting that Gazprom and Russian authorities be allowed to participate in the investigation. Sweden refused.
Andersson stated Monday that Sweden will not share with Russian authorities the findings from the explosions in the Swedish economic area.
She stated that in Sweden, preliminary investigations are confidential and that this applies in this case.
Andersson stated that Sweden was unable to prevent Russian ships from visiting the site of the explosions after the crime scene investigation had been concluded.
The Swedish economic zone does not include the territory that Sweden owns. “We have lifted the cordons now, and then it is also possible that other ships can stay in the area. That is how the rules work,” she stated.
After the damaged pipelines that link Russia and Germany via the Baltic Sea, the authorities of Sweden and Denmark have been investigating four leaks.
Europe, which used to depend on Russia for 40% of its gas supplies, now faces an energy crisis as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. This has dramatically reduced the fuel supply.
