Just in the middle of the Baltic Sea on international waters we passed a congregation of Russian ships constantly communicating over VHF radio. We later learned to know these ships are working on the Nord Stream 2 project.
This project launched by Russian Gazprom is a congregation of companys and knowhow, building a pipeline on the seabed for gazdeliverance from Russia to Germany. The project is controversial with several EU countries and USA critizising the fact that Germany (a NATO allied) becomes dependent of Russia on such a vital thing as energysupply. Gazprom related companys have also tried to gain access to some Swedish ports for the job, but have been denied .
Picture taken with my mobile and quality as expected.
