Sweden the latest EU country to pass the buck after Nord Stream investigation

Sweden’s refusal to release its findings from an investigation launched into the destruction of the Nord Stream pipelines is but the latest act of a European country trying to pass the buck on a matter that continues to leave the public with more questions than answers 18 months on.

Following its investigation into the explosions which occurred in September 2022 on Nord Stream pipelines carrying Russian gas to Germany, Swedish officials claim that they “lacked jurisdiction” to reveal what happened and have now handed their evidence to German investigators. The silence is deafening.

“We have a picture of what has happened, and what that picture consists of we cannot go into more detail, but it leads to the conclusion that we do not have jurisdiction,” Swedish Public Prosecutor Mats Ljungqvist told Reuters. “It is not Sweden’s task to continue this investigation.”

For something that was so glaringly obvious to many Western officials 18 months ago – that it was Russia that had decided to blow up its most lucrative energy pipeline with Europe – it is becoming increasingly fishy as to why the various investigations by EU countries have found so little evidence worth publishing.

In the immediate aftermath, European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen claimed “any deliberate disruption of active European energy infrastructure is unacceptable and will lead to the strongest possible response”.

Since then, separate investigations by Germany, Denmark and Sweden have indicated that the explosions were a deliberate act of sabotage, yet none have identified the perpetrator.

It’s almost as if the ‘right’ evidence has not been found, as opposed to any evidence at all.
