Danish Military Confirm Presence of Russian Ship Near Nord Stream

Danish Military Confirm Presence of Russian Ship Near Nord Stream

The Danish military has confirmed media reports that a Russian special ship was in the area days before the Nord Stream pipeline blew up. Why it was there is still unclear.

According to the Danish military, a few days before the Nord Stream explosions in the Baltic Sea, a Russian special ship was in the vicinity of the detonation sites. The Danish defense command confirmed to the newspaper “Information” that a patrol ship took 26 pictures of the “SS-750” on September 22, 2022 east of the island of Bornholm.

Four days later there were several explosions on the pipelines near Bornholm. The authorities assume sabotage. It is unclear who is responsible for this. Investigations are underway in Germany, Denmark and Sweden.

In mid-April, “Information” reported that the Danish patrol boat “P524 Nymfen” took a total of 112 photos of Russian ships near the lines on September 22.

At the end of March, the t-online portal, citing information from security circles and publicly available data, reported that Russian military ships were believed to have operated at the crime scenes a few days before the attacks on the pipelines – including the “SS-750”. The latter features a mini submarine with grabbing arms. The Swedish researcher and intelligence expert Joakim von Braun said it was designed for underwater operations.

Another expert, Oliver Alexander, was quoted in the published report as saying the ship could theoretically have been in the area for other reasons. “But the timing to be in this place at this point in time is special,” he said.
