Unmarked Naval Vessels and Submarines harrassing Nordstream 2 Pipeline workers, Support Ship RAMMED!
Some are even trying to RAM INTO the pipe laying ships in an attempt to derail construction of the Nordstream 2 pipeline which would bring natural gas from Russia into Europe. One of the more serious ramming incidents took place back on Feb. 22nd 2021 and yet there wasn’t even a peep in the western media. Here is some information from Tass.ru.
MOSCOW, April 1. / TASS /. The company – the operator of the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline – Nord Stream 2 AG – announced the increased activity of warships and civilian vessels in the area of the pipeline laying. These actions are provocative and can lead to emergency damage to the gas pipeline, Andrei Minin, director of the Nord Stream 2 AG branch, told reporters.
“After the resumption of the construction of the offshore section of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in January 2021, there has been an increased activity of warships, aircraft and helicopters, as well as civilian vessels of foreign countries, whose actions are often clearly provocative in nature,” he said. .
Minin recalled that during the implementation of such projects, a 1.5-mile safety zone is established, which should not be entered by ships not participating in the construction. “Nevertheless, near the technical vessels carrying out the work, warships of foreign states are constantly recorded (including by tactical numbers). The Polish anti-submarine aircraft PZL- Mielec М-28В1 Rbi “, – he said.
Minin said that foreign activity around pipe-laying vessels has intensified recently. Thus, on March 28, an unidentified submarine appeared on the surface in the protective zone of the pipe-laying vessel at a distance of less than one mile. “Considering that Fortuna’s anchor lines are located more than one mile away, the submarine’s actions could disable the entire anchor positioning system of the pipe-lay barge and lead to emergency damage to the pipeline,” he explained.
Fishing vessel incidents
He noted that in recent months, there have been “more dangerous incidents” associated with the entry into the security zone of the work of fishing vessels, which at the same time did not go into radio communication. “On February 22, 2021, while pipelaying south of the Danish island of Bornholm, the Polish fishing vessel SWI-106 entered the work protection zone from the southern direction. Repeated attempts to establish radio contact with it were unsuccessful. In this situation, the supply vessel Vladislav Strizhev was forced to leave on the course of pushing back, as a result, SWI-106 made a bulk on Vladislav Strizhev. After the collision, the captain of the fishing vessel got in touch and pleaded guilty to the incident, “Minin said, noting that” if it were not for the decisive actions of the supply vessel, the blow would have hit the Fortuna pipe-laying barge.
A naval protest was lodged over this incident through the Russian consulate in Germany.
According to Minin, a similar incident was repeated on March 30, when two objects were discovered in the immediate vicinity of the pipe-laying barge, one of which was heading towards Fortuna and did not answer radio calls.
“It was decided to start moving towards the object on a crossing course. The ship’s floodlights were used to attract attention. At about 4:00 a fishing vessel was spotted, which changed course and went south without making radio contact. The second object was waiting in the southwest. he also left Fortuna without answering radio calls, “said the director of the Nord Stream 2 AG branch.
He stressed that the actions of warships and aircraft, as well as civil ships of foreign states, violating the security zone of the construction of an international project, not responding to requests and approaching a dangerous distance to the pipe-laying barge, are irresponsible and unacceptable. “They create a real threat of emergencies with unpredictable consequences,” Minin said.https://moevideo.biz/native?id=mv-content-roll-1309&slot=content&api=2.0&ref=tass.ru
“We are talking about clearly planned and prepared provocations, both with the use of fishing vessels and warships, submarines and aircraft in order to obstruct the implementation of an economic project. This is perhaps the first and unprecedented case of this kind in history,” he summed up.
