The Danish Energy Agency reports the discovery of a mysterious object near the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. The services have already published photographs of an unknown object to be extracted from the bottom of the Baltic Sea.

“The object has the shape of a cylinder, about 40 cm high and 10 cm in diameter. It is possible that it is a sea smoke buoy” – according to the Danish services. They also inform that it was decided to fish out the object with the help of armed forces.
“Therefore, the Danish Energy Agency offered participation in this operation to the owner of the gas pipeline, the Swiss company Nord Stream 2 AG” – .
The fact that the unidentified object is actually in the vicinity of Nord Stream 2 was already mentioned in mid-March by Danish Foreign Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen. At that time, he assured that the object did not pose a threat to people or ships.
Authorities assure: The object poses no threat
Nord Stream 2 is the “successor” of Nord Stream 1. The gas pipeline runs from Russia to Germany along the bottom of the Baltic Sea. It was supposed to double the amount of Russian gas flowing to Europe. From the very beginning, it aroused controversy for political and economic reasons. Ultimately, it was not launched, and the direct reason for stopping work on the gas pipeline was the Russian aggression against Ukraine. Opposition to the investment was also expressed by the authorities of the USA and the European Union.
In September 2022, there were explosions and gas leaks from Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 near the Danish island of Bornholm, which damaged both lines of the gas pipeline. At the time of the explosions, none of the pipelines were carrying natural gas, but they were filled with raw material. Speculation continues to this day as to who is behind the incident.
