Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said today that he does not expect the findings of investigations into who is responsible for last year’s Nord Stream gas pipeline explosions to be made public.

The pipelines, which link Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea, were hit by unexplained explosions last September in what Moscow called an “international terrorism”.

Denmark, Germany and Sweden conducted their own investigations into the explosions. Moscow has repeatedly protested that it has not been invited to the investigations nor is she kept informed of their findings.

I do not expect these investigations to be transparent, nor do I expect the results to be made available to the general publicLavrov said at a press conference.

Swedish and other European investigators say the blasts were caused by deliberate attacks, but have not said who they believe is responsible.

Moscow has blamed the blasts, without providing evidence, on Western sabotage.
