Swedish newspaper Expressen published photos of the destroyed 50-meter section of Nord Stream. The pictures were taken at a depth of 80 meters in the Baltic Sea.

An underwater camera recorded long cracks in the seabed. A reinforced concrete pipe was torn apart as a result of an alleged sabotage, journalists say.

The authors note that the force of the explosion was 2.3 on the Richter scale. After the explosion, at least 50 meters of the gas pipeline disappeared.

Swedish and Danish authorities noted that the pictures were taken by an underwater drone of the Norwegian company Blueye Robotics.

According to drone operator Trond Larsen, damage to such thick metal could be subjected to extreme force. A long crack went through the pipe.

The captured frames show that some of the fragments after the explosion have even sharp edges, while on others the metal was severely deformed. Larsen added that fragments, similar to torn off parts of the pipeline, are scattered at the bottom.

The Germans followed the version that the Russians staged a series of explosions on the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines.

Western sociologists suggested that sabotage at Nord Stream could deprive the leaders of European countries of unity and determination in supporting Ukraine.

The UN warned of the risk of the largest methane release in history after the accident at Russian pipelines.
