The European Commission announces its awareness of Sweden’s decision to stop investigations into the “Nord Stream” bombings

The European Commission told RIA Novosti that in light of information about Sweden's decision to close investigations into the Nord Stream pipeline bombings, Denmark and Germany are continuing their investigations.
Yesterday, Wednesday, Swedish Attorney General Mats Ljungqvist announced the end of the investigation into the explosions that occurred in the Stream 1 and 2 pipelines, claiming that these investigations are not within his jurisdiction. He revealed that Germany will continue the investigation.

A spokesman for the European Commission's press office told Novosti: "The European Commission has been informed that Sweden has closed the investigation into the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines. While investigations continue in Denmark and Germany."

He stressed that "the responsibility for conducting these investigations lies with the member states of the European Union."

It should be noted that Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said earlier that Russia has repeatedly requested data about the explosions that occurred on the Nord Stream lines, stressing that it "never received it."

It is known that explosions occurred in two Russian gas export pipelines to Europe – “Nord Stream 1” and “Nord Stream 2” on September 26, 2022. For its part, the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office initiated a case related to an international terrorist act.

Yesterday, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stated that fear of revealing the truth may have been behind the Swedish authorities' decision to stop investigations into the Nord Stream bombings.

 It stated that the Swedish side repeatedly rejected Russian calls to conduct a transparent and comprehensive investigation into the sabotage of the “Nord Stream” pipelines with the participation of Russian experts.

Gatilov: Russia supports granting permanent membership to India and Brazil in the UN Security Council

Gennady Gatilov, Russia's permanent representative to the United Nations in Geneva, said that India and Brazil are serious candidates for a permanent seat on the UN Security Council.
Gatilov stressed that reform of the UN Security Council has become increasingly required.

He added: “To increase the effectiveness of the Security Council, the representation of developing countries from Africa, Asia and Latin America must be expanded . We consider Brazil and India to be strong candidates for permanent seats on the Council, if a decision is taken to expand the UN Security Council, whether in the category of permanent or non-permanent members.” ".

Gatilov pointed out that reform of the UN Security Council has become "increasingly required" in order to eliminate the lack of representation of developing countries, while the West is over-represented.

He said: "The modern structure of global governance does not fully correspond to geopolitical realities. It must take into account the emergence of new centers of political and economic influence on the world map, and contribute to building a more just and democratic world order. Multilateral principles in international affairs must truly be strengthened."

The UN Security Council, a permanent working structure of the United Nations, bears the primary responsibility for maintaining international peace and security.

The Council includes 15 countries - five permanent members and ten temporary members. The permanent members are Russia, the United States, Britain, China and France. These countries have veto power. The remaining ten members of the Security Council are elected for two-year terms periodically.
