Sweden dispatches special diving vessel to area of pipeline leaks
Vessel sent to Baltic Sea area where Nord Stream 1, Nord Stream 2 pipelines had leaked natural gas

STOCKHOLM (AA) - Sweden has dispatched a vessel to the Baltic Sea area where damaged undersea pipelines had leaked natural gas for days, Swedish authorities said Monday.

The vessel, capable of “advanced diving missions,” was sent to the area where Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 pipelines are located, the Swedish Coast Guard said in a statement.

The coast guard did not disclose information regarding how many ships and submarines are currently in the region.

Three leaks in the Russia-owned Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 pipelines were reported off the coast of Denmark and Sweden, with ships warned not to approach the area.

Both countries, as well as the EU, said there were signs that the leaks were the result of deliberate action and not an accident.

Russia stopped natural gas deliveries through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline on Aug. 31 as necessary maintenance could not be carried out.
