Russia Urges Sweden again to Share Nord Stream Probe Findings

Russia renewed its calls on Sweden late on Monday to share its findings from the ongoing investigation into the explosions that damaged the Nord Stream gas pipelines last year.
The U.N. Security Council will meet on Tuesday to discuss “sabotage” after Moscow asked for an independent inquiry into the September attacks on the pipelines that spewed gas into the Baltic Sea.
Sweden and Denmark, in whose exclusive economic zones the explosions occurred, have concluded the pipelines were blown up deliberately, but have not said who might be responsible.
“Almost five months have passed since the sabotage of the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines. All this time, however, the Swedish authorities, as if on cue, remain silent,” Russia’s embassy to Sweden said on the Telegram messaging platform. “What is the leadership of Sweden so afraid of?”
The embassy reiterated the Russian foreign ministry’s question whether Sweden had something to hide over the explosions.
