A drone has revealed the length of underwater Nord Stream pipeline that could only have been caused by one or more massive underwater explosions, according to experts.
amely, Blueye Robotics, used an underwater drone to review damage to the Nord Stream 1 pipeline which. The footage revealed a 50m length of pipeline that was either missing or buried in the seabed.
Although Russia has denied causing damage to the two Nord Stream pipelines, the EU has accused the country of using gas as a weapon in response to European support for Ukraine.
As of now, three different pipeline investigations are under way, conducted by Danish, German and Swedish authorities. A joint enquiry was ruled out on the grounds of national security interests.
However, the possibility of sabotage of the pipeline has increased fears of possible attacks on other vital subsea infrastructure.
