Sweden is likely to announce this week that its law enforcement officers will stop investigating the Nord Stream explosions and the subsequent gas leak, writes Expressen.

The article says that yesterday, February 5, the Swedish prosecutor Mats Ljungqvist, who heads the investigation of the leak at Nord Stream in Sweden, announced the news regarding the case this week.

According to journalists, the news will be that Sweden will decide to stop the investigation.

Sweden has started an investigation to find out if there is any "Swedish trace" in the sabotage.

At the same time, the termination of the Swedish investigation will not affect the investigation in Germany, which is conducted by the federal prosecutor and the federal criminal police, as well as the Danish investigation.

It is expected that the decision to terminate the investigation in Sweden will be announced tomorrow, February 7.

Undermining Nord Stream

In September 2022, leaks were discovered on the Russian gas pipelines Nord Stream-1 and Nord Stream-2.

Later it turned out that the gas leak was caused by an explosion. Such information was announced by seismologists for the first time.

Several European countries began to investigate the incident, with one of the versions of the leak being sabotage.
