Gas pipelines SP-1 and SP-2 received unprecedented damage: German media talk about sabotage


It became known that almost simultaneously both main pipelines - Nord Stream and Nord Stream - 2 - received significant damage. On September 26, at SP-2, which was never put into operation, but was filled and under pressure, one of the lines in the exclusive economic zone of Denmark.


The next day, Nord Stream AG, the operator of the joint venture, reported problems already on its gas pipeline.

Dispatchers of the Nord Stream control center recorded a pressure drop on both strings of the gas pipeline. Reasons are being investigated

- stated in the company's communiqué.

The destruction on all three lines of the said gas transmission system, which runs along the bottom of the Baltic Sea, is unprecedented, Nord Stream AG said. The operator stressed that it is still impossible to estimate the timeframe for restoring the efficiency of the JV's gas transmission infrastructure.

After the shutdown for maintenance of the JV gas pipeline from August 31 to September 2, Gazprom did not put it into operation. The Russian gas giant informed that numerous oil leaks were detected in the Siemens turbines located at the pumping station.

Currently, navigation is prohibited in the area of ​​gas outlet to the sea surface. Airplanes are also not allowed to fly over it.

According to a number of German media, what happened on both pipelines indicates a targeted sabotage, or at least looks like a very strange coincidence. For example, this opinion is shared by the editors and experts of the newspaper Der Tagesspiegel, who refer to their own sources. According to them, an investigation is underway, but everything indicates that this is not an accident.

    In order for the dreams of European officials to fully come true, problems must arise on the Ukrainian GTS and Turkish flows.
    And then Europe will finally get rid of totalitarian Russian gas.

      I think it's the Anglo-Saxons who "removed" the last lever of Russia's pressure on Europe and at least some hopes of Europeans for rapprochement with their northern neighbor. Now the stash will become golden and will become the subject of a very large bargaining, if the current is not damaged somewhere comparable to the damage to the Anglo-Saxon "assets".

    under investigation, but everything indicates that this is not an accident

    Of course, I am a layman, but it seems to me that such strategically important, and most importantly, potentially dangerous facilities should be equipped with security systems, sensors for monitoring activity near the pipeline.
    Modern, digital technologies allow this to be realized in a jiffy...

    Or not ?

    I am personally surprised at one thing - why didn’t the gas pipelines explode earlier? After all, it is much easier than imposing sanctions there and not giving away turbines? Now - the Europeans are iron kirdyk in winter, even capitulation to Russia will not help ...

    I think this is an answer to Geyropa's deep thoughtfulness on the topic of whether she is doing everything right .. No need to think - you need to stupidly march to their tunes ..

    It is always asked who benefits, and in the event of damage to underwater gas pipelines, as many as 3 threads at once, which indicates that it is not an accident ... There is no benefit for Germany and the Russian Federation, it is better for them to simply stop pumping for any paper or service reasons. It is beneficial only to England and the United States, for further torpedoing the EU economy as competitors. England does not receive gas from the SP-1 pipelines, and the USA will deliver its liquefied gas at soaring prices ... So it looks like the work of the US "fur seals" ...

    A technically competent specialist will immediately say that three spaced pipes in one area cannot depressurize by themselves. Pipes from Norway are intact. An anchor from a ship can damage one pipe, but this is also unlikely, the captain is not a suicide to anchor on a pipe. This is sabotage. Conducted sabotage by the United States together with England. The place was chosen on the territory of Denmark, so that none of the strangers could investigate and repair. The Russian Federation will be accused of poor quality work.

      Diversion is the most likely scenario. Now the most important thing is that Gazprom does not increase pumping through Poland and Ukraine. Then Scholz can pack his suitcase.

    Nothing to be surprised. Everything is going according to the plan of the States, which are playing off Europe and Russia.
    The states need a war between Europe and Russia, in which both sides will fight diligently, with all their might. Only then will they succeed in weakening Europe with the blood of Russia, destroying Russia with the hands of Europe, absorbing the weakened Europe, finishing off what remains of Russia and appropriate its resources. As for our nuclear weapons, they are not afraid of them, probably because they have controlled our leadership since 1991. In the same way as the leadership of the countries of Europe, Ukraine, Georgia, etc., is controlled.
    To break out of this situation, Russia needs to change power and force the States to fulfill the conditions of the Ultimatum flushed down the toilet with the threat of its strategic nuclear weapons. NATO will gladly carry out the necessary commands of its master

          20 years is a long time, or short by the standards of the country. I would really like it to be big and as much as possible has been done over the years, but history shows that for this it is necessary to CONSOLIDATE society with the state ... now we have a problem with this, because. part of the society is patriotic and ready to endure hardships for the development of the country, part stupidly rows for itself, part identifies itself with the West, part cannot understand what the hell is going on

        Destroying us in the late 90s was probably a simple matter, given their control over Yeltsin (and therefore over our nuclear weapons). However, they came up with this plan. It became doubly unprofitable for them to destroy Russia. Even with control over nuclear weapons, there would have been great costs and sacrifices on their part, because the former Soviet people remained untouched by betrayal. The president cannot just take and command the country to surrender to the enemy.
        Another thing is with this plan. According to him, Russia, in its destruction, must still produce useful work, which the Anglo-Saxons themselves do not want to do. Firstly - in order not to shed their own blood, and secondly - in order to reduce their own conflict field with Europe to the limit, not to get themselves dirty in its blood. Grant this honorary role to their common enemies. These are the Anglo-Saxons at their routine work

          they simply didn’t have time to finish us off in the 90s, because. We decided that we would bury ourselves safely. did not grow together.
          the people have already been offered all sorts of sections, branches of the republics, independent regions ... some were led and there really were movements "for independence". if they worked, we would not be discussing here with you now.
          as for the betrayal by the people, so we "plunged into a beautiful life from the cover." almost everyone loved it...
          your plan as a hypothesis has the right to life. again from the history of the development of England as a colonial state with its intervention in everything and around the world.

            Perhaps - it was "Putin's project" within the framework of the Anglo-Saxons' plan - to keep Russia until better times (when they "need" it). Here we have lived up to these times.
            At the same time, Russia was "sharpened" for future tasks. Remember Putin's words - "Russia needs a compact professional army." The huge, powerful army of the past could easily go beyond the limits of the plan's tasks and introduced an element of uncertainty into it. Therefore, Serdyukov appeared. The same thing happened in parallel in many areas.

    If the attack on gas pipelines is not yet red lines, then Putin is an American (choice of German, English, etc.) spy. And he still pumps gas to the enemies of Russia, and they send weapons to kill Russians. Now it becomes clear why weapons from all over Europe and America are quietly delivered to Ukraine, from where there are hundreds of tanks and even aircraft on the front line. Where are all the calibers now? Spinelessness is everywhere. What, near Donetsk Brest Fortress? Not a single fortress can hold without ammunition, water and food. can't be covered?

    1) In geopolitical games, no one asks the people whether they can be deceived or forced. The people were against the collapse of the USSR and even voted. So what??? Where is the USSR?
    2) Greed the west kept Russia intact. After all, if it breaks up into many small states, China would occupy the most tasty regions (Siberia and the Far East). Therefore, the West decided to take over all of Russia completely through financial institutions and transcontinental energy companies.
    3) And, YES, until 2000, the West was not afraid of Russia's nuclear weapons, only because there was no one to give the order to use them.
    4) With the advent of Putin, the Russian Federation has such a force.
    5) And yet, remember the law: a person sees in others only what is in himself. I'm talking about linear logic.
