An investigation into damage at the sites of the gas leak on the Nord Stream

An investigation into damage at the sites of the gas leak on the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines has reinforced suspicions of sabotage, Sweden’s secret police said last week.

Four leaks from gas pipelines in the Swedish and Danish exclusive economic zones are being investigated by the Danes in addition to the Swedes.

European states have previously said they suspect the pipelines were damaged deliberately.

Russia, whose semi-state firm Gazprom is the majority owner of the pipelines, has accused the West, specifically the United States, of sabotage.

Washington has denied any involvement in the incident.

The Danish island of Bornholm suffered a blackout today due to a transformer failure.

The island is located in the Baltic Sea near the places where the explosions damaged the pipelines of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines.

The blackout on the island of 40,000 inhabitants was reported by the Danish public media company DR.

Blackout was caused by the failure of the Swedish transformer station, which supplies electricity via submarine cable, E.ON later reported.

The exact cause of the outage is unknown, but is likely caused by an undetected disruption of the electrical cable connecting the island to the Swedish mainland, DR said.
